JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 



FIRST DAY 

Rocky Mount, K C., May 12, 1931. 

The one hundred and fifteenth Annual Convention of the 
Diocese of North Carolina was held in the Church of the Good 
Shepherd, Rocky Mount, N". C, beginning Tuesday, May 12, 
1931. 

The Holy Communion was celebrated in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd at 7 :30 a.m., the Bishop of the Diocese officiat- 
ing, assisted by the Bishop Coadjutor and the Rev. Francis H. 
Craighill. 

At 9 :30 a.m., Morning Prayer was said in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd by the Rev. Messrs. Morrison Bethea and Wil- 
liam H. Hardin. 

The Bishop Coadjutor called the Convention to order at 10 :30 
a.m., and the roll was called by the Secretary; 44 clergy, 
and 72 delegates from 28 parishes and 12 organized missions 
were present and answered to their names. A quorum being 
present, the Chairman declared the Convention duly organized. 
The Rev. Elwood L. Haines was elected Secretary and the 
Rev. Daniel W. Allen was appointed Assistant Secretary. 

The hours of the Convention were fixed according to the 
printed program. 

Bishop Cheshire and Bishop Penick then read their annual 
addresses. (See Appendix A.) 

The addresses of the Bishops were referred to the Committee 
on the State of the Church. 

On motion of the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence, it was resolved that 
a special committee be appointed to consider that portion of the 
Bishop Coadjutor's address dealing with the office of the Execu- 
tive Secretary, and that the report of this Committee be made 
the special order of business at the opening session on Wednes- 
day morning. The Chairman appointed as members of this 
Committee the Rev. Messrs. John L. Jackson and Alfred S. 
Lawrence, and Mr. Kemp P. Lewis. 



24 Journal of Proceedings 

The Kev. Milton A. Barber, S.T.D., read the report of the 
Standing Committee of the Diocese, as follows: 

Report of Standing Committee for 1930 

January 20. Consent was given to the Ordination and Consecra- 
tion of the Very Rev. Hayward S. Ablewhite as Bishop of the Diocese 
of Marquette. At this meeting the President presented the schedule 
of appropriations from the Holt Fund as submitted by Bishop 
Cheshire and Bishop Penick for approval by the Standing Committee. 
The schedule as submitted was approved. But as neither bishop was 
present in person to answer any inquiries about the proposed appro- 
priations, the Committee requested the bishops by formal resolution 
to give them in the future more definite information about the per^ 
sons or places receiving appropriations from the Fund; and especially 
to inform them as to the total salary of every missionary, from all 
sources, who was a beneficiary of this Fund. The Committee felt 
that this information was necessary, if they were to act intelligently 
on the schedule of appropriations submitted to them for their 
approval. 

January 27. A letter was presented from Bishop Penick enclosing 
a formal request from Holy Trinity Parish, Greensboro, N. C, for 
permission to lease part of its property for a specified sum. The 
vestry of the parish had voted unanimously to accept the proposal 
of the lessee, subject to the approval of the Ecclesiastical Authority 
of the Diocese. This request from the parish in Greensboro being 
accompanied by the formal approval of the Ecclesiastical Authority 
of the Diocese, the Standing Committee likewise gave its consent 
and approval. 

April 29. The Committee refused to give its consent to the Diocese 
of Duluth to elect a Bishop Coadjutor on the ground that they had 
not in their application fully complied with the Canons of the General 
Convention; and the President of the Standing Committee of the 
Diocese of Duluth was duly informed of the reason for our refusal. 

At this meeting on April 29 consent was given to the Ordination 
and Consecration of the Rev. Robert Burton Gooden, D.D., as Suf- 
fragan Bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles; and of the Rev. Henry 
Wise Hobson as the Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Southern 
Ohio. Also consent was given to the election of the Rt. Rev. 
Sheldon Munson Griswold, D.D., Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese 
of Chicago, to be the Bishop of said Diocese. At this same meeting 
the Rev. deSaussure Parker Moore was recommended to the Bishop 
for Ordination to the Priesthood on Trinity Sunday, June 15, or any 
day thereafter; and Jackson Augustus Martin was recommended for 
Ordination to the Diaconate on June 1 or any day thereafter. 

May 13. Meeting on the grounds of old Christ Church, Cleveland, 
during the annual Convention of the Diocese, the Committee recom- 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 25 

mended that the time of the Rev. Edwin W. Hurst in the Diaconate 
be shortened, and that he he ordained to the Priesthood on, or at 
any time after, June 14. The reason for this recommendation was 
that Mr. Hurst had spent twelve years in the Methodist Ministry, and 
had, therefore, much experience in preaching and teaching. 

May 27. This being the first meeting of the Standing Committee 
since their election by the last Diocesan Convention, they were 
duly organized by the election of the Rev. Milton A. Barber, S.T.D., as 
President and Mr. Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr., as Secretary. 

At this meeting the Committee duly considered the request of 
Ernest McGerson Winborne that his time as a Candidate for Holy 
Orders be shortened and that he be recommended to the Bishop 
for Ordination to the Diaconate. The reasons given for this request, 
endorsed by Bishops Cheshire and Penick and the Dean of the 
Virginia Seminary, moved the Committee to recommend the shorten- 
ing of his time as a Candidate for Holy Orders, and that he be 
ordained to the Diaconate any time after June 1. 

At this same meeting on May 27 consent was given to the Ordina- 
tion and Consecration of the Rev. George Craig Stewart, D.D., as 
Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Chicago; and of the Rev. Henry 
Knox Sherrill, D.D., as Bishop of the Diocese of Massachusetts. 
Consent was also given to the election and transfer of the Rt. Rev. 
James Craik Morris, D.D., Missionary Bishop of the Canal Zone, 
as the Bishop of the Diocese of Louisiana. 

September 18. Consent was given to the Ordination and Conse- 
cration of the following Priests as Bishops of this Church: 

The Rev. Charles K. Gilbert, D.D., as Suffragan Bishop of the 
Diocese of New York; the Rev. Benjamin Tibbetts Kemerer as 
Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Duluth; the Rev. Frederick 
Deane Goodwin, D.D., as Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Virginia; 
the Rev. Robert Nelson Spencer as Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese 
of West Missouri. 

At this same time Benjamin Thorp Brodie was recommended to the 
Bishop for admission as a Candidate for Holy Orders. 

At this meeting on September 18 Bishops Cheshire and Penick 
appeared before the Committee, and presented certain facts con- 
cerning the Rev. Duncan Thomas, a Deacon of this Diocese, and 
asked our counsel and advice. Bishop Penick having presented evi- 
dence to us that Mr. Thomas had renounced the Ministry of this 
Church, and had expressed the desire to be deposed from said Min- 
istry, the Standing Committee consented to and advised his deposition 
from the Ministry of this Church. 

November 3. Frank E. Pulley and Milton Moran Weston were 
recommended to the Bishop for admission as Candidates for Holy 
Orders. There was presented to the Committee a formal request 
from the Rev. John Jordon Greene and the Rev. Jackson A. Martin 
that their time as Deacons be shortened, and that they be recom- 



26 Journal of Proceedings 

mended to the Bishop for Ordination to the Priesthood. The reason 
given in both cases, approved by Bishop Penick, seemed good and suf- 
ficient. We, therefore, recommended that their time as Deacon be 
shortened and that the Rev. John Jordon Greene be ordained to the 
Priesthood at any time convenient to the Bishop; and that the Rev. 
Jackson A. Martin be ordained to the Priesthood at any time after 
December 15. 
All of which is respectfully submitted. 

Milton A. Barber, President. 

The Rev. Elwood L. Haines read the report of the Executive 
Council of the Diocese, as follows : 

Report of the Diocesan Executive Council 

The Executive Council of the Diocese met in Greensboro, July 25, 
1930, and was reorganized as follows: Field and Publicity: Rev. 
Sidney S. Bost, Chairman; Rev. Wm. H. Hardin, Miss Rena H. Clark 
and Mr. Richard H. Lewis. Finance: Mr. John H. Cutter, Chairman;

Mr. Thomas H. Webb, who was elected to the Council at the 
last Convention, presented his resignation at the first meeting, and 
Mr. Fred W. Glover was elected by the Council to fill the vacancy. 
Mr. Kemp P. Lewis found it impossible to serve as chairman of 
the Department of Missions and Church Extension, and the Rev. 
Milton A. Barber, S.T.D., was appointed to the chairmanship of this 
department. 

Associate members of the departments were elected during the 
year, and confirmed by the Council, as follows: Field and Publicity.- 
Rev. Joseph N. Bynum and Messrs. Wade R. Brown, J. Russell Clark, 
S. P. Collier, Arthur H. London and John H. Small. Missions and

and Messrs. Holmes and Willis attended two; and Mrs. John Perry- 
Hall attended one. 

Field and Publicity Department 

The Annual Diocesan Forward Movement Conference was held 
in Holy Trinity Church, Greensboro, September 23-24, with an at 
tendance of 43 clergy and 119 laymen from 46 parishes and missions 
The leaders of the Conference were Bishop Penick, Rev. David R 
Covell of the National Field Department, Rev. J. Kenneth Morris 
of Japan, Rev. Sidney S. Bost, Rev. Elwood L. Haines, and Messrs 
Wade R. Brown, John H. Small and W. F. Joyner. Mr. Richard H 
Lewis presided. 

The Diocesan Conference was followed with six district confer 
ences during October and November, which were attended by 570 
people, as compared with 447 in 1929. Furthermore, representatives 
of the Executive Council and others met with the vestries of twenty 
Churches to explain and present the quotas and to offer suggestions 
for the conduct of the Every Member Canvass. 

The Department prepared and distributed a Handbook of the 
Every Member Canvass, and an illustrated folder entitled "Stories 
of Service," together with other material for the use of the clergy 
in preparation for the Canvass. 

The plans for a Province-wide Teaching Mission on the Great 
Commission, to be conducted under the leadership of the Provincial 
Field Department, of which our Bishop Coadjutor is Chairman, are 
noted with much interest, and your Field Department hopes that the 
Convention will give its hearty endorsement and support to this 
undertaking. 

Under the head of Publicity, your Department reports that the 
Carolina Churchman has been issued in much improved form and at 
an earlier date each month, and that special issues on Diocesan 
Camps, Advance Work and the Forward Movement have been pub- 
lished during the year. Much credit is due the editor, the Rev. Theo- 
dore Partrick, Jr., for his ability and energy, and his readiness to co- 
operate with all departments of our Church's work. 

Finance Department 

The final results of the Every Member Canvass of 1930 showed that 
the total sum of $62,403 was pledged for the year 1931, as against 
quotas of $72,224. This is about $6,700 less than the pledges for 
last year. Only 55 Churches pledged in full, whereas 109 did so last 
year. In addition to the amount pledged, the Woman's Auxiliary 



28 Journal of Proceedings 

has promised $500 as a special Emergency Fund which will be used 
to meet emergency appeals at the discretion of the Executive Coun- 
cil, and will also endeavor to pay its customary Forward Movement 
pledge of $4,000. 

The budget for the current year was reduced to $69,739, at the 
meeting of the Executive Council held on January 7. The items are 
as follows : 

Missions and Church Extension $13,717 

Religious Education 3,000 

Field and Publicity 800 

Christian Social Service (Thomp. Orphan.) 12,000 

Executive Council 250 

Executive Secretary 6,300 

Treasurer's Office 850 

Interest 570 

General Church Quota 20,000 

Provincial Apportionment 500 

Diocesan Debt 1,700 

Interest on Debt 297 

Deficit, 1929 and 1930 6,141 

St. Mary's House, N. C. C. W., Note and Interest 614 

St. Mary's School, Raleigh..^ 3,000 



$69,739 



Despite the reduction in the budget, a further reduction of $3,500 
appears necessary to avoid a deficit at the end of this year. 

Special committees of the Executive Council have had under con- 
sideration the present financial system of the Diocese and the study 
of various quota systems. The present method of determining ap- 
portionments was again approved, pending the discovery of a more 
satisfactory plan. 

The adoption of a policy whereby the Finance Department will 
take up with local Church authorities the matter of unpaid insurance 
premiums on mission property, and the successful application of 
the rule of deducting from the Forward Movement appropriations 
to mission Churches the amounts due on pension premiums for the 
past year, were other matters connected with the Finance Department 
which are worthy of report. 

The Diocesan budget for 1932, and recommended to the Convention 
for adoption, is as follows: 

Missions and Church Extension $14,937 

Religious Education 3,675 

Field and Publicity 800 

Christian Social Service (Thompson Orphanage) 12,000 

Administration 8,103 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 29 

General Church Quota $24,607 

Provincial Apportionment 735 

Diocesan Debt 1,511

Deficit, 1929 and 1930 3,684 

St. Mary's House, Note and Interest 554 

St. Mary's School, Raleigh 3,000 



$73,802 
Missions and Church Extension 

A number of important changes have taken place in our Diocesan 
Mission field during the past year. The Rev. Messrs. Thomas L. 
Trott and John C. Seagle have left the Diocese, and the churches 
formerly served by them are at present in charge of the Executive 
Secretary, and the Rev. Messrs. Win. H. Hardin and Mark H. Milne. 
The Rev. F. Craighill Brown is now Rector of Southern Pines, and 
priest-in-charge at Sanford. The Rev. Royal G. Shannonhouse has 
been appointed to serve St. James' Mission, Pittsboro. Mount Airy 
and Elkin, formerly served by the Rev. Thomas S. Clarkson, have 
been added to the field of the Rev. Daniel W. Allen, and the Rev. 
J. Reginald Mallett of Greensboro is assisting him in some portions 
of his large field. Mr. Clarkson now serves Smithfield and Selma from 
his headquarters in Raleigh, where he is acting as chaplain to 
Bishop Cheshire. The Rev. Samuel W. Hale of Wilson is in charge 
of St. Mark's Colored Mission in Wilson, and with the aid of laymen 
and a Captain of the Church Army, has revived the work in Maccles- 
field. Erwin is being served by the Church Army until June, at 
which time a clergyman will be placed in charge. The mission at 
Laurinburg has been assigned to Rev. Thomas Wright of Lumber- 
ton, in the Diocese of East Carolina. The Department notes with 
interest the inauguration of work at Good Hope Mission, Mecklenburg 
County, by the Rev. Henry Edwards of Charlotte. 

The missions at Madison and Satterwhite have been closed during 
the past year, and the appropriation for the Negro Parochial School 
in Tarboro has been withdrawn. 

On recommendations by this department, a system of quarterly re- 
ports by all missionary clergy to the bishops has been adopted, and 
a survey of the status of all mission property has been undertaken. 
Also, the Executive Council approved the Department's recommenda- 
tion that a minimum salary standard of $2,000 for a married man 
and $1,500 for a single man be adopted for our missionary clergy, 
and the Bishops be requested to bring up those below this minimum

Religious Education 

The development of Teacher Training in the Diocese has been 
given considerable attention by the Department during the year. 
The Diocese has been districted for this purpose, a Diocesan faculty 
has been appointed, and four regional meetings were held in January 
under the leadership of Miss Annie Morton Stout of the Provincial 
Department of Religious Education. 

The Church School Service Program has been reorganized, with 
Miss Bess Hensel as supervisor, and efforts are being made to enlist 
a greater number of Church schools in the work of the Little Helpers, 
the Christmas Box, the Advent Offering, and the Birthday Thank 
Offering. The Lenten Offering was carried on this past Lent with 
considerable interest, the effort reaching a happy climax in four 
well-attended Presentation Services in various parts of the Diocese 
on the Second Sunday after Easter. 

The Young People's Work was placed in charge of a special com- 
mittee of which the Rev. Elwood L. Haines is the chairman, in order 
to enable Mrs. Frank N. Challen to devote her full time to the 
Student Work at N. C. C. W. Mrs. Challen received a part-time 
appointment as a U. T. 0. Worker this year, the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the National Church paying $900 of her salary. 

The Department begs to report that the Young People's Work 
is in a vigorous condition, as indicated by the success of the Diocesan 
Camps last Summer, and the enthusiastic convention held in Winston- 
Salem. The decision to abandon our camps for this Summer became 
necessary when the Vade Mecum proposition was referred to this 
Convention for consideration and decision. 

The College Work at St. Mary's House, N. C. C. W., has been un- 
usually progressive. Mrs. Challen's reports fairly teem with striking 
statistics, of activities among the 123 Episcopal students. These 
activities include Bible Classes, confirmation lectures, noonday 
Lenten Services, special services with visiting speakers of note, the 
sending of delegates to a Life Work Conference, etc. 

The Department has studied the matter of the eventual employment 
of a full-time Director of Religious Education; sought to develop 
work in Adult Education and among isolated Church people; and 
has conducted a successful Conference of those engaged and interested 
in work among students. It has systematized its publicity in the 
Carolina Churchman by electing the editor thereof to membership 
in the Department and giving him charge of the two pages devoted 
to the work and plans of this Department. It has further determined 
to issue quarterly a mimeographed bulletin to be sent direct to 
every Church in the Diocese. It has to a certain degree sponsored 
the Girl's Friendly Society, the Diocesan President of which is now 
an associate member of the Department and reports at each meeting. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 31 

Department of Christian Social Service 

The field of Christian Social Service is two-fold: (1) Practical 
programs of relief and amelioration, and (2) Preventive and curative 
programs. 

The department has submitted to all the white clergy a suggested 
schedule of social service in the parish with the idea in view that 
parishes not systematically carrying out some social service scheme 
might be assisted by this means. A similar plan of action for the 
colored clergy is contemplated but the Department felt the need of 
a further study before submitting a definite program to them. 

It is apparent that our activity has been limited to the former 
aspect of Social Service, to wit: that having to do with relief and 
amelioration. It is hoped that steps may be taken to consider the 
more fundamental problems concerned with prevention and cure 
of social disorders which eventuate in human suffering, too often the 
innocent being conspicuously present among the victims. To this 
end, the Social Service Department of the National Council is 
active and makes solid contribution; but the Diocese is not absolved 
of responsibility likewise. Our plans in this direction, however, 
must wait on deliberation and careful study as well as, in some 
measure, upon an appropriation of funds. At this juncture, there- 
fore, the department has no specific recommendation to make. 

Recommendations 

1. That the Convention approve the provincial plans for a Pro- 
vince-wide Mission on the Great Commission, to be held during the 
next year and a half; and the plans of the Diocesan Commission on 
Evangelism for the same to be undertaken in this Diocese. 

2. That the Laymen and lay women of this Diocese take under 
serious consideration the work of the young people and its importance 
to the future of the Church, with particular reference to offering and 
preparing themselves to serve as counsellors of their local branches 
of the Young People's Service League. 

3. That a rising vote of appreciation be extended to the Woman's 
Auxiliary for their special emergency pledge of $500 to the 1931 
budget, and for their recent action pledging their support to the 
Advance Work program of the Diocese. 

4. That, whereas it is necessary to reduce the budget for the 
remainder of the current year by $3,500, the Convention determine 
at what point or points this reduction shall be made, and instruct 
the Executive Council to take steps accordingly. 

5. That the office of Forward Movement Treasurer be abolished, 
and the duties and responsibilities of this office be thereafter dis- 
charged by the Treasurer of the Diocese. 

6. That the Convention fix the salary and expenses of the newly- 
appointed Treasurer. 



32 Journal of Proceedings 

7. That the proposed Diocesan Budget for 1932, as presented by 
the Executive Council, be approved. 

8. That the report of the Committee of this Council on the Vade 
Mecum proposition be made the special order of the day immediately 
after lunch of the first day. 

Edwin A. Penick, Chairman. 
Elwood Iv. Haines, Sec?*etary. 

On motion of the Rev. John L. Jackson, the first recommend- 
ation of the Executive Council, dealing with the Province-wide 
Teaching Mission on the Great Commission, was referred to 
the Diocesan Commission on Evangelism. 

The following recommendations of the Executive Council 
were approved: 

That the laymen and lay women of this diocese take under serious 
consideration the work of the young people and its importance to the 
future of the Church, with particular reference to offering and pre- 
paring themselves to serve as counsellors of their local branches 
of the Young People's Service League. 

That a rising vote of appreciation be extended to the Woman's 
Auxiliary for their special emergency pledge of $500 to the 1931 
budget, and for their recent action pledging their support to the 
Advance Work Program of the Diocese. 

That the report of the Committee of this Council on the Vade 
Mecum proposition be made the special order of the day immediately 
after lunch on the first day. 

Bishop Penick conducted noon-day prayers for missions. 
The Rev. Elwood L. Haines submitted his report as Executive 
Secretary of the Diocese, as follows: 

Reoport of the Diocesan Executive Secretary 

As your Diocesan Executive Secretary, I have continued to en- 
deavor, during the past year, to serve the Executive Council and 
its departments, together with various organizations and committees 
of the Diocese, and to assist the Bishops in some of the details of 
administration. 

Since the first of February I have served as priest-in-charge of 
Trinity Church, Statesville, and have acted as chairman of the 
newly-formed committee on Young People's Work which is charged 
with the duties formerly discharged so ably by Mrs. Frank N. 
Challen. 

My activities include 24 celebrations of the Holy Communion, 31 
other services conducted, 98 sermons and addresses, 58 diocesan 
meetings attended, 42 churches and 16 parish organizations visited, 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 33 

and 20 conferences with vestries and congregations. I have also 
attended the Kanuga Clergy Conference, the Provincial Synod, a 
Clergy Retreat at Monteagle, Tennessee, and the Annual Conference 
of Executive Secretaries and Field Department Chairmen in Chicago. 
The Chicago Conference, which was attended by delegations from 
38 Dioceses and 15 officers of the National Council or its departments, 
was of impressive importance as representing the accumulated ex- 
perience and the general mind of the Church on a number of matters 
which are not without significance to this Convention. I will mention 
several of its findings, as I am convinced that they have a direct 
bearing upon our diocesan problem, and I would urge them upon the 
consideration of this Convention. 

(1) No adequate substitute for the Annual Every Member Canvass 
has yet been suggested. Every Bishop of a Diocese should be appealed 
to to lend his support to the continuation of a thorough Canvass. 
A thorough canvass means a systematic house-to-house visitation 
by trained canvassers, making contact with every member of the 
congregation, following the proper educational and devotional prep- 
aration of the people. My observation is that there are but few of 
the churches of our diocese which take the canvass as seriously 
as this. 

(2) There should be an adequate and efficient organization for 
publicity purposes in every diocese of the Church. Other than the 
Carolina Churchman, which reaches not more than one family in 
five, we have no working agency for publicity. The press of the 
State has little cognizance of the Episcopal Church. This is not the 
press' fault, but our own. 

(3) The use of the two-fold Pledge and the Duplex Envelope is 
indispensable in leading our members to accept the fact that Christian 
stewardship involves adequate provision for the work of the Diocese 
and the National Church, as well as the local congregation. While 
a few may have progressed so far in their conception and practice 
of stewardship that they can abandon this device for the single 
pledge and the single envelope on the basis that the Church's 
Mission is One and World-wide, the majority have not grown up 
to this idea. To foster and maintain regular, systematic payments on 
the Quota as well as on the local budget, our appeal in most cases 
must be to the individual to support both by means of a two-fold 
pledge. Otherwise the situation is entirely in the hands of the 
vestries, which are not always apt to be missionary-minded, par- 
ticularly when pressed by local bills. Less than a third of our 
churches receive pledges for the Forward Movement. Our situation 
is illustrated by one church which stands near the top in extra- 
parochial giving. In 1920 this church stood seventh in the Diocese 
in Forward Movement giving, in 1930 it stood fourth. When the 
Vestry learned this, it began to seriously consider reducing its pledge 
for 1931, and may do so. And this notwithstanding the fact that the 



34 Journal of Proceedings 

annual receipts have increased 127 per cent, while the quota is less 
than 4 per cent larger than it was ten years ago. Needless to say, 
in this church, the Forward Movement pledge is determined, not 
by the pledges of the people but by the action of the Vestry. 

(4) The Conference also strongly recommended separate account- 
ings within the congregations of the collections for the local budget 
and for the Forward Movement, by the appointment of separate 
treasurers; the adoption by every congregation of the practice of 
forwarding to the Diocesan Treasurer on a fixed date every month 
of all sums received from individuals on their pledges to the Forward 
Movement; and action by the Diocesan Council instructing its treas- 
urer to forward to the Treasurer of the National Council on a fixed 
date every month the proportion of the receipts due the National 
Council. Our last report showed the churches $4,400 in arrears to 
the Forward Movement for the first quarter of the year, and nothing 
paid on the quota to the General Church. 

After three years' trial of the office of Executive Secretary, which 
was undertaken more or less as an experiment three years ago, the 
time would seem to have come for the Convention to decide whether 
the position is essential to the present policy of the Diocese, calling 
for the Executive Council and Departmental plan. If it is felt to be 
essential, three things appear to be necessary for the office to be 
properly effective: (1) The element of uncertainty regarding the 
continuation of the office, which has been a constant handicap during 
the past seven months, should be removed. (2) The office should be 
provided for by Canon, and the duties defined. There is the distinct 
danger, signs of which are evident at present, that the departments of 
the Council will lose some of their initiative and resourcefulness, 
if it is not made clear exactly what the Executive Secretary is sup- 
posed to do, and, for that matter, what we expect of our departments. 
Furthermore, when the Executive Secretary is again asked to define 
his office, as he so frequently is, it will be a great relief to refer the 
inquirer to the proper Canon. (3) The office should not only be} 
defined by Canon, but its status safeguarded. Any move to alter 
our present financial policy by combining either or both of the 
treasurerships in the office of the Executive Secretary, I feel would 
be a serious mistake. The multiplicity of detail which is bound to 
attach to such an office would make it exceedingly difficult for a 
state of accuracy in matters of diocesan finance to be maintained. 
Such influence as the office now has would be largely lost if the 
Executive Secretary were required to form his contacts with the 
local churches principally on the basis of urging collections and 
presenting financial emergencies. Furthermore, if the Diocese were 
so fortunate as to find combined in one clergyman (unless it were 
decided that it were better to employ a layman for this office) the 
qualities required of an Executive Secretary and those required 
of a financial expert, we should consider whether we would care to 



Diocese of Nobth Carolina, 1931 35 

entrust our financial affairs to one who is always subject to call 
elsewhere, and whose status is impermanent at best. Also, I feel 
that any attempt to save money by curtailing the office would defeat 
our ends. If anything, we should anticipate its expansion. 

I wish again to voice my grateful appreciation to the authorities 
of the Diocese, and to the local officers and various members of the 
churches, who have never failed to receive me on a basis of cordial 
friendship and good-will, and to encourage me in my work. 

El wood L. Haines.

Mr. Alexander B. Andrews then read the report of the Trustees 
of the Diocese, as follows : 

The Trustees of the Diocese respectfully report: 

That on the 19th day of June, 1930, they passed a resolution 
authorizing and directing the Treasurer of the Diocese to invest the 
money belonging to the Permanent Episcopal Fund, deposited in 
the savings bank, in the purchase of 140 shares of Reynolds common 
stock "B" at approximately $47.50 or better; and he was authorized 
to borrow for fifteen days money to buy said stock so that the money 
on deposit might draw interest for the quarter ending June 30. 

At a meeting of the Trustees September 13: 

1. In the matter of condemnation by the City of Greensboro, of 
land of the Church of the Redeemer, laying assessments for damages, 
etc., upon the advice of Rev. Elwood L. Haines, accompanied by 
written opinions of Mr. Paul W. Schenck and Mr. E. B. Jeffress, of 
Greensboro, the Trustees agreed unanimously to accept the award 
of $259.74 as damages for the land condemned, and also the assess- 
ment of $246.75 for street improvement; also to accept the proposition 
that the City Engineer shall make the necessary reconstruction of 
the steps of the church at the expense of the city, in accordance with 



36 Journal of Proceedings 

the plans prepared by the City Engineer and approved by the Rev. 
Elwood L. Haines. The said Rev. Elwood L. Haines was appointed 
agent of the Trustees to receive the said sum of $259.74 and to give 
a proper acquittance for the same; also from said money so received 
to pay to the City of Greensboro the said assessment of $246.75, and 
the balance in his hands to pay over to the said Church of the 
Redeemer. 

2. In the matter of the house on the corner of Boylan Avenue and 
Jones Street, in the City of Raleigh, the Trustees approved the action 
of the Bishop in having said house repaired and put in habitable 
condition at a cost of $443.85, and they agree that the Bishop be 
authorized to receive the profits and rents of said property until he 
shall have received the sum so expended. 

In October, 1930, the Trustees of the Diocese received from the 
Erwin Cotton Mill Company a deed for a lot in the town of Cooleemee, 
in Davie County. The deed not having been recorded it has been 
sent to the Register of Deeds of Davie that it may be properly re- 
corded in his office. 

March 10, 1931, the American Church Building Fund Commission 
having made a donation of $1,000 for the completion of Ephphatha 
Church for the Deaf, in the City of Durham, the Trustees of the 
Diocese signed the "Agreement to Refund," under the conditions 
specified, and required by the rules of the said Commission. 

The Trustees do not feel that they should conclude this report 
without making mention of the amount of $1,000 in 7 per cent Caro- 
lina Power & Light Company preferred stock, which the Treasurer 
of the Diocese received in October for the Permanent Episcopal 
Fund from the executor of the will of the late Rev. Julian E. Ingle, 
a clergyman for 65 years, 50 years of which were spent in this 
Diocese, continually working until his advancing years halted his 
usefulness in active work. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

Joseph Blount Cheshire, 
Albert L. Cox,

referred to the Committee on Canons. 

Mr. John H. Small read the report of the Committee on the 
State of the Church, as follows : 

To the Delegates of the Diooese of North Carolina of the Protestant 
Episcopal Church: 
The Convention assembled at Rocky Mount, May 12, 1931. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 39 

The Committee on the State of the Church, makes its report as 
follows: 

Executive Council 

Your committee is of the opinion that the organization of the 
Diocese through the Executive Council and its departments has 
demonstrated its usefulness and efficiency. We should not forget, 
however, the good points of the old system of convocations and arch- 
deacons. Something of its personal touch with the mission field 
has been lost. 

Your committee is of the opinion that this situation is in part due 
to the fact that the duties of the Council and its departments are am- 
biguous. They should be defined by canon after careful considera- 
tion. The canons also should define the duties of the Executive 
Secretary, for the office of which there is at present no canonical 
provision. 

Finance 
The Immediate Situation 

In the field of finance, the diocese has much for which to be thank- 
ful, and some cause of apprehension. Your committee feels that the 
payment in 1930 of $71,020.55 on quotas of $71,052.67 (lacking only 
$32.12 of the quotas) is a convincing demonstration of the strong 
spirit of consecration which dominates our membership. Such a 
record during a year of economic paralysis is most commendable. 
Nor is that statement marred by the fact that in order to accomplish 
this result many churches overpaid their quotas, while 17 white 
churches and 12 colored churches failed to meet their quotas. That 
the strong should help the weak is a principle of Christianity. 

For the present year of 1931, conditions are not so encouraging. 
There has been pledged the total sum of $62,403.00 against quotas 
of $72,224, or approximately $6,700 less than was pledged for 1930. 
Only 55 churches have pledged in full, in contrast to 109 last year. 
The Executive Council has already been forced to reduce the budget 
adopted at the last Convention from $76,947 to $69,739, and antici- 
pates the necessity of a further reduction of $3,500. 

With present economic conditions in mind the Finance Depart- 
ment has curtailed the budget recommended for 1932 to $73,802. 
It may be said that we are meeting the situation as it exists, but 
we are not moving forward. 

Parochial Finances 

Your committee takes cognizance of the difficulty some churches 
are experiencing in raising the amounts necessary for all purposes, 
and your committee is of the opinion that these difficulties arise by 
no means from economic conditions alone, but more especially result 
from: 



40 Journal of Proceedings 

(1) Insufficient preparation for the Every Member Canvass. 

(2) An improperiy conducted canvass. 

(3) Disproportionately high local requirements. 

(4) Absence of good business methods. 

Special circumstances may exist, causing financial difficulties, 
without the interposition of any of these weaknesses; and all of 
them may not exist in any one parish or mission. On the whole, 
however, in these four faults may be found the secret of our financial 
failures. 

Your committee reaffirms its utmost faith in the Every Member 
Canvass as the best means of raising the money necessary to support 
our Church. It has applied good morals and good business to the 
collection and administration of the money of the Church. It has 
democratized the financial support of the Church, made of it an 
opportunity for all, rather than a burden upon a faithful few. It 
has improved our Church schools, increased our resources, raised 
our ministry to even higher levels, and enlarged our vision. 

It is not out of place, in this connection, to summarize what the 
Every Member Canvass has achieved for the Diocese of North 
Carolina. 

The financial accomplishments of the canvass are known. They 
have been tremendous. In 1919, the last year of the old, methodless 
manner of giving, the churches of our Diocese expended the sum 
of $180,831.01. Within one year by the first canvass, the total of 
expenditures was raised to the remarkable total of $312,705.05. Dis- 
bursements for missionary and charitable purposes alone increased 
from $40,822.11 to $95,161.77, an increase of 133 per cent. 

With the depression of 1921 and 1922, there was a slight drop 
from those fine results. Generally, however, there has been a gradual 
increase of total expenditures, until in 1928 we disbursed the maxi- 
mum amount of $354,613.54, and in 1929, the sum of $341,151.58. 

Under the old regime, from 1910 through 1919, our Churches gave 
and disbursed on an average, annually, $132,853.34. The Every 
Member Canvass has provided funds during the past ten years for 
an average expenditure of $318,841.36, very considerably more than 
twice as much. 

The Every Member Canvass has likewise had much to do with 
a rapid increase in the value of Church property, providing the 
method to raise funds for repair and improvement of existing prop- 
erty, and for building new churches and parish houses. Since the 
institution of the canvass, our property has risen in value from 
$1,543,251 to $4,132,675, an increase of $2,589,424, or 167 per cent. For 
the period from 1910 to 1919, the average annual increase in value 
of our Church property was but $81,998.40. From 1919 to 1929, the 
average annual increase has been $258,942.40, over three times as 
great. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 41 

These facts and figures certainly demonstrate that the Every 
Member Canvass can meet our financial problems. But we must 
also meet the Every Member Canvass at the halfway point. And 
that demands preparation and application of its principles. Its 
first great requirement is education of all the people of a church, and 
its second is the giving to every member by personal contact an 
opportunity to pledge his rightful part for the spread of Christ's 
kingdom. When the invitation is extended, those who know the 
program give. 

Among some Churchmen, including even some vestrymen and 
some clergymen, there is a feeling that the Diocese and National 
Church are asking too much, that necessary local expenses come first. 
Certainly one could not be familiar with the proceedings of the 
conventions and the Executive Council without realizing that since 
1920 the Diocesan Budget has been consistently curtailed. And 
assumedly it is a principle of the Every Member Canvass that neither 
parish, nor diocese, nor National Church is first; rather that each 
shall cooperate with the others. 

The fact is that the Canvass put a great money-raising instrument 
in our hands, opening up great vistas of possibilities. Accompanying 
its early years was a period of prosperity. The result was that many 
of our churches committed themselves for local purposes beyond 
their present capacities to pay. If we cannot meet these promises and 
at the same time bear our rightful share of diocesan and national 
obligations, it matters not that such local obligations are useful or 
even necessary. 

Figures clearly show how disproportionate has become the local 
expenditures of our churches. While the total of missionary, and 
charitable work of the parishes has decreased from $95,161.77 in 
1920, to $79,730.22 in 1929, current expenses alone have increased 
from $134,604.71 in 1920 to $190,894.75 in 1929. To the latter 
figure, add the sum of $70,526.61 for special parochial expenses and 
we have an expenditure of $261,421.36 for parochial purposes, as 
opposed to $79,730.22 for missionary and charitable objectives, less 
than one-third as much. 

In the same period, our quota to the National Church was decreased 
from $42,965 to $24,500, and this year, 1931, to $20,000, less than 
one-half of the quota of 1920. 

Finally, your Committee is of the opinion that the business methods 
— or rather lack of business methods — applied to church finances 
must be reflected in the pledges of the membership. It is unnatural 
for a man to give to a loosely conducted organization. In its last 
report your Committee made numerous references to evidences of 
unbusinesslike methods in the operation of parishes and missions. 
It particularly referred to inaccuracies and omissions in the keeping 
of records of the highest importance, so common as to be almost 
general; and to the matter of insurance of church property, over 



42 Journal of Proceedings 

70 per cent of the churches either failing to report any insurance 
at all or reporting an insufficient amount. It also called attention 
to the unsatisfactory status of the valuation of church property. 

There are other evidences of improper business methods among 
our churches. A grave crisis in diocesan finances arose last year 
by the failure of churches to remit over long periods on their 
Forward Movement quotas. The diocese could not meet its obliga- 
tions from money in hand. Diocesan activities and institutions 
were financially embarrassed. Honesty and good morals demand 
that local treasurers forward to the diocese at fixed intervals its 
proportionate share of moneys received. 

In this connection, your Committee calls attention to the 
unsatisfactory status of the annual financial reports received from 
local churches. Section IV of Canon 53, of the National Church 
provides: 

"All accounts, having to do with the receipt, and expenditure, or 
investments of money of all Church organizations shall be audited 
at the close of each year by a certified public accountant; provided, 
however, that if the amount of income for the year, as shown by 
the account, shall be less than $3,000, or if a certified public accountant 
is not available, the audit may be made by an accountant bookkeeper 
in no way connected with the subject matter of the account." 

In the face of this mandate, of 105 parochial reports (all but four) 
received by April 23, the following facts are significant, if not 
alarming: 

6 were signed by treasurer and a public auditor. 

10 were signed by treasurer and audited by the Chairman of the 

Finance Committee or a member of the Vestry. 
19 were signed by the treasurer and audited by the Rector. 
42 were signed by the treasurer and unaudited. 

11 were signed by the rector and unaudited. 
14 were unsigned. 

3 carried no financial report at all. 

Of the 105 reports received, 20 were mathematically inaccurate and 
4 had to be returned to the Churches for correction. 

Advance Work Program 

While we are in sympathy with the Advance Work Program, your 
committee is of the opinion that the Annual Diocesan Budget should 
include an amount for extension, and that no additional campaign 
to meet the Advance Work Program should be permitted. As shown 
by this report, the status in the entire mission field is not satis- 
factory. The inclusion of items for extension might remedy this 
situation. It should be the duty of the Department of Missions to 
submit to each convention items of necessary missionary expansion 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 43 

work for the ensuing year. This part of the budget should also 
include a part of the Advance Work Program of the National Church. 
It is recommended that the amount provided for extension work 
not exceed 5 per cent of the total budget. 

Missions 

In spite of the comparative growth of our unorganized missions 
as a whole as shown in the statistical analysis with which this 
report concludes, the situation in a number of those churches is 
discouraging, as it is also with respect to some organized missions 
and some parishes receiving diocesan aid. The eight unorganized 
missions with less than 20 communicants (as a matter of fact, their 
highest number is 12) well illustrates the seeming desperate futility 
of our effort: 

Value of Number 1920-1930 
Mission Property Communicants Baptisms Confirmations 

Elkin $10,110 4 2 

Franklinton .... 400 6 

Germanton 2,100 12 .... 2 

Milton 5,000 5 2 

Selma 6,000 11 4 9 

Spencer 3,500 6 

Spring Hope 4,100 4 3 5 

Stoneville 1,650 2 



$32,860 50 11 16 

Eight of the nine confirmations at Selma were in one year. The 
above represents an investment of $657 for each communicant. It 
would be interesting to obtain the sum that has been spent in operat- 
ing those missions over the same period of 11 years. 

Faced as we are with economic stress, the question squarely con- 
fronts us: Should any missions be closed? It is not the function 
of this Committee to answer that question, but it does say that if 
we are to maintain them, we should see that at least more tangible 
results are produced. 

In similar connection, a study has been made, not by this Com- 
mittee, but by a reliable party, showing that about $160,000 was 
spent from 1919 through 1928 by the National Council and this 
diocese on the churches of our colored convocation, during which 
period there was a decrease of 37 in total colored communicants, a 
rather expensive loss. 

In discussing the situation in the mission field, your Committee 
in its 1930 report referred to the possible connection between salaries 
of missionaries on the one hand and length of stay and results 
accomplished on the other. After further study, it is more convinced 



44 Journal of Proceedings 

than ever that there is a connection. Rev. Theodore R. Ludlow, of 
the National Council, has this to say in response to a letter from 
the Committee: 

"In 1927 I made a survey of the salaries and length of stay of 
our clergy throughout the whole Church. I think my survey bears 
out your contention that length of stay is very largely determined 
by salary and economic conditions. Personally, I believe that no 
man can render an adequate ministry whose mind is tormented by 
financial strain. And I am inclined to agree with you that a few 
properly cared for men would probably give more effective service 
than a greater number of half-paid men." 

We have established a minimum salary of $1,500. In your com- 
mittee's opinion, that is too low. Each missionary clergyman serves 
from one to five churches. The Diocese of East Carolina has made 
an investigation of mission salaries and has adopted a plan for 
an increase in salary every three years of ministers whose churches 
show substantial increase in Church school pupils and confirmations 
and pay apportionments in full. 

Certainly the mission field, its churches, its ministers, and their 
salaries, should be the object of a thorough investigation, with a 
view to evolving a definite plan for improvement. 

Abandoned or Unused Church Property 

A most unsatisfactory condition exists with respect to abandoned 
or unused property of the diocese. There are 14 locations of such 
property, as follows: 

Franklinton Mission. 

Goshen, St. Paul's. 

Gulf, St. Mark's. 

Madison, St. John's. 

Mocksville, St. Philip's. 

Mooresville, St. Stephen's. 

Rowan County, St. Andrew's, St. Jude's and St. Mary's. 

Satterwhite, St. Simeon's. 

Semora, Cunningham Chapel. 

Stokes County, Knowlhurst Chapel. 

Union County, St. Timothy's. 

Wake Forest, St. John's. 

In addition, your committee notes that since 1920 activities have 
also been discontinued at Albemarle, at Holy Trinity, Elm City, 
and at St. Philip's, Salisbury, but has no information of property 
in those places, except that it understands there is none at Albemarle. 
The diocese also owns numerous properties at missions, which are 
not being used for the purposes contemplated, such as rectories 
being rented out and the money collected by the mission itself. There 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 45 

are 10 such rectories at missions and parishes receiving diocesan 
aid, as follows, with annual rental shown: 

Cleveland $150.00 

Erwin 378.00 

Hamlet (Retiring mortgage) 480.00 

Rowan County 60.00 

Smithfield 180.00 

Kittrell 

Littleton 300.00 

Mayodan 120.00 

Sanford 150.00 

Mecklenburg County (Retiring mortgage) 240.00 

An investigation should be made of all abandoned or unused 
property, and proper action taken with respect thereto. 

Missions: General State of Property 

Your Committee finds that there are eleven missions and aided 
parishes on the property of which no fire insurance is carried, as 
follows: 

Ansonville Germanton 

Madison (closed) Mayodan (Department Missions 

Ridgeway arranging to insure same) 

Selma Stoneville , 

Union County (closed) Walnut Cove ; 

Littleton, St. Anna's Satterwhite (closed) 

Thirteen other missions fail to report what insurance, if any, is 
carried. 

Upon information your Committee reports that Church property 
is badly in need of repair at the following missions and aided 
parishes: 

Durham, St. Andrew's Statesville (rectory) 

Germanton Townesville 

Iredell County Union County 

Laurinburg Walnut Cove 

Littleton, St. Alban's Henderson, Resurrection 

Madison Louisburg, St. Matthias' 

Mayodan Littleton, St. Anna's 

Middleburg Tarboro, St. Luke's 
Selma 

There are 14 missions which owe a principal total of $4,190 in past 
due street assessments which they are unable to meet. Costs and 
penalties on these assessments mount rapidly. They are:

Social Service 

That only fifty per cent of the people of North Carolina and of the 
United States are even nominal members of any Christian denomi- 
nation, and that of these certainly a very large proportion are not 
active members are facts startling enough to cause us to ask ourselves 
many serious questions. 

Speaking of no denomination, but in general, your Committee is 
of the opinion that the outstanding weakness of Christianity today 
is its comparative indifference to Social Welfare. Actually, of course, 
Christianity is not indifferent; every Christian precept challenges 
our interest in the well-being of man. But it spends its energy too 
much upon words — words such as these. Christianity seems impotent 
to solve the complex social problems, many of which have been 
thrust upon us by the changing conditions of the last few decades. 
A majority of our people are indifferent to Christianity because 
Christianity has lost touch with their daily lives. 

Can we not say that in the field of Social Service is the Church's 
great opportunity — opportunity to serve and to revivify itself? Is 
not the Church the leaven needed to transanimate Social Service 
into Social Welfare — the well being of society as a whole? 

Mere words are not enough. A resolution does not work a revolu- 
tion. If the Episcopal Church would lead in this social adventure, 
we must first pledge ourselves to be a social-minded church — as 
we are at heart — and then consecrate ourselves to the task. Your 
Committee, at the conclusion of this report, will recommend that this 
diocese do pledge itself for a period of two years to an intensive 
study of social problems and to an intensive effort toward their 
relief, and that a special committee on Social Welfare be appointed 
to assist the Department of Social Service in the prosecution of this 
purpose. If that resolution be adopted, your Committee earnestly 
requests every parish and mission to appoint a similar committee 
to study local conditions and to carry forward the diocesan program. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 47 

Your Committee recommends a systematic education of our people on 
this subject in church services, in units of the Woman's Auxiliary, 
in Men's Clubs, in the Young People's Service League, and in Church 
schools. 

Let us be social-minded and social-doing. 

Religious Education 

The Church schools of the diocese represent a tremendous am- unt 
of intelligent, unselfish work. The Church schools are our hope for 
the future and have more than made up in improved organization 
and teaching for what they have lost in numbers. 

The Church School Service Program today has five objectives: 
1. Lenten Mite Box. 2. Little Helpers Home Contribution Box. 
3. Birthday Thank Offering. 4. Advent Mite Box. 5. The Christ- 
mas Box. The first three are fundamentally a part of any well 
organized Church school. For the others, your Committee suggests 
a substitute: the adoption by every school of a Church School Budget 
in which parochial, diocesan, and national missionary objectives are 
included. The same money can thus be given to the same causes, 
for which the church will receive credit on its Forward Movement 
quota. The funds to meet this budget will be derived from the weekly 
offerings of the school and from such other sources as may be 
determined upon locally. Too great stress cannot be laid upon the 
principle that nothing should be done to give any child the impression 
that his Church school is a money raising institution. For this 
reason your Committee disapproves more than one mite box a year — 
the traditional Lenten Mite Box — no matter how worthy the object 
of any other. 

Good Work and Innovations 

Your Committee is of the opinion that exceptional work on the part 
of ministers and laymen should receive recognition by the Church. 
It is impossible, of course, to know all of the special work that is 
being done, and the line of demarcation between normally good work 
and especially good work cannot always be drawn. Your Committee, 
however, takes pleasure in acknowledging exceptional work for the 
past year or more of Reverend Samuel W. Hale of St. Timothy's 
Church, Wilson, in the missionary field at Macclesfield and St. 
Mark's Church, Wilson. 

It also desires to call attention to the special work of the Rev. 
Daniel W. Allen in Stokes County in Red Cross Drought Relief. 
In addition to his regular duties in a field that is larger than that 
of any missionary clergyman, he devoted a large amount of time, 
energy and personal means in investigating applicants, distributing 
medicine, food, clothing and seeds. 

Your Committee also commends three recent innovations of the 
Executive Council: (1) The Diocesan and District Forward Move- 



48 Journal of Proceedings 

ment Conferences of last Fall; (2) The Presentation Services of 
the Lenten Offering; and (3) The Teacher Training Institutes. 

Statistical Analysis 

Following its appointment two years ago, the Committee on the 
State of the Church initiated a statistical analysis of the churches 
of the Diocese of North Carolina beginning with the year 1920. 
Last year it reported on its analysis of Diocesan Missions. It has 
now completed a study of all the churches of the diocese with re- 
spect to baptisms, total baptized persons, confirmations, communi- 
cants, services, celebrations of the Holy Communion, and officers, 
teachers and pupils of the church school. Without cost to the diocese, 
the records of this work are being deposited with the Executive 
Secretary. The results are instructive and should prove useful 
to the Executive Council, also to ministers, especially as they assume 
new pastorates. 

In its report of 1930, this Committee said "Your Committee recog- 
nizes that the work of the Church is bigger than mere figures." 
That statement is reaffirmed. The ministry does not constitute a 
statistical bureau. Much of the work of a clergyman cannot be 
reduced to numbers. His activities are personal and individualistic. 
Furthermore, mere size is not an index of success or of consecra- 
tion. A missionary to our own rural and industrial centers labors 
as does a missionary to China, without worldly acclaim and often 
without the comfort of tangible results which can be tabulated. 
Again, we say, the work of the Church is larger than mere figures. 

But the canons of the National Church require, and our churches 
submit fundamental figures on each year's work. These figures are 
indeed fundamental, and they are spiritual. Else confirmation is 
not a spiritual rite. And they are important. 

Whether important or no, the churches submit these figures and 
in common honesty they should be accurate. They are not always 
so. We have already commented upon the inaccuracy of this year's 
financial reports. Upon comparison and study, side by side, of the 
reports of each church for the past 11 years, your Committee does 
not hesitate to say that gross carelessness and ignorance are demon- 
strated on numerous occasions. By way of illustration, and we 
will not go further for lack of space, one of the most active churches 
in this diocese has reported exactly even numbers of baptized per- 
sons every year during the entire eleven years. The coincidence 
taxes our imagination too far. The figures, as accurate figures, 
are worthless. 

We shall now summarize briefly some of the results of this statisti- 
cal study. In doing so, it is well to explain that the totals vary 
somewhat from those given in the journals, because the study is 
of the churches now existent, and eliminates churches previously 
reported, but now abandoned. The inclusion of closed churches 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 49 

would only make our present status less favorable than reported. 
Likewise, in order to provide comparisons of value, in these sum- 
maries we do not include the chapels at St. Mary's College and the 
Thompson Orphanage, especially because changes at the latter in 
registering confirmations and Church school pupils at a local parish 
would be erroneously unfavorable. Also parochial missions are re- 
ported under their respective parishes. In the diocese there are 
at present 42 parishes, 26 Diocesan missions, 16 unorganized mis- 
sions, and 18 colored churches. 

In total baptized persons, these churches have increased from 
13,027 in 1920 to 15,923 in 1930, an increase of 22.2 per cent, or 2 
per cent a year, which is understood to be about normal, although 
certainly not noteworthy. This figure is 267 less than that reported 
for 1925, before it cost to be big! The unorganized missions led 
in growth, more than doubling their size from 315 to 655. Parishes 
led next with a 30 per cent increase, closely followed by diocesan 
missions. In 11 years the colored convocation decreased in number 
of baptized persons. 

In total communicants, the situation is about the same, a gain of 
1,838 members from 8,638 to 10,476, an annual increase of almost 
2 per cent. But there has been no gain since 1926. Again the un- 
organized missions led with a 100 per cent gain, followed by diocesan 
missions with 47.5 per cent and by parishes with 18.7 per cent. 
Again the colored convocation lost, but not so severely; it has 32 less 
communicants than 11 years ago. 

The facts are somewhat different with respect to total in the 
Church school. Increase there has not been satisfactory; in 1929 — we 
did not have the figures for 1930 — there were only 911 more officers, 
teachers and pupils than in 1920, a gain of less than ly 2 per cent a 
year. The order of increase was unorganized missions first; diocesan 
missions, second; colored convocation, third; and parishes, last. 
In ratio of Church school pupils to total baptized persons, the colored 
convocation stands first, having more officers, teachers and pupils 
than baptized persons. This is largely the result of the situation 
at Louisburg and at St. Augustine's, Raleigh. On the whole, however, 
large schools are reported by the negro churches. Unorganized mis- 
sions, diocesan missions, and parishes follow this ratio in the order 
named. In other words, the parishes have fewest in the Church 
schools in comparison to baptized members. 

Let us now consider in somewhat greater detail, baptisms and 
confirmations. The results are not gratifying. In both we are ad- 
vancing backward. One year not being a true index, we have taken 
the two 3-year periods, from 1920 to 1922, and from 1928 to 1930. 
In the first there were 1,860 baptisms, in the latter, only 1,445, a 
decrease of 22 per cent. Only unorganized missions registered a 
gain, but in neither period can they find cause for pride. 



50 Journal of Proceedings 

There is a similar decrease for the two periods in confirmations, 
from 1,753 in 1920-1922 to 1,605 in 1928-1930, a loss of 8.4 per cent. 
By far the greatest decrease was in diocesan missions. Unorganized 
missions and the colored convocation both exactly held their own. 

For the 11 years, the average number of baptisms per church 
per year was 5.77, one every 9 weeks. In this respect, the larger 
parishes naturally led with an average of almost 10 a year, followed 
by the colored convocation, the diocesan missions, and the unor- 
ganized missions, the latter averaging slightly more than one a 
year. 

In number of confirmations per church per year, the figures are 
almost identical, only slightly higher, the average being 6. 

But these are averages. Without mentioning names, we give you 
facts to demonstrate that all is not well with individual churches. 
In eleven years there were four churches which had no baptisms what- 
ever, and seven which had no confirmations. In 18 the average 
was one baptism or less per year, and in 16 one confirmation or 
less. Eighteen more had from one to two baptisms a year, and 14 
had from one to two confirmations. In other words, there was a 
grand total of 40 churches, or 39.2 per cent, with two baptisms or 
less a year, and 37 or 36 per cent with two confirmations or less a 
year. Even if figures are not so important, this is not progress. 

And here are facts even more discouraging. For the period of 
eleven years, the 102 church units reported on, had 1,091 church years, 
credit being given for the years when some were not in operation. 
There were 365 church years, or slightly over one-third when there 
were no baptisms whatever. There were 445 church years, or 
almost 41 per cent, when there were no confirmations whatever. 
In other words, the churches as a whole had no baptisms one out of 
every three years, and no confirmations two out of every five years. 
Is our pastoral work really so weak? 

Far more could be deduced from this 11 year analysis. These 
figures are not given you to be remembered as such. But they are 
not dry figures; they teem with life and spiritual import. They 
are not given you to disrupt our common fellowship. But they are 
given to awaken us all to the fact that much of the Master's work 
remains to be done, and to bind us together with common purpose 
and determination to employ the talents entrusted to us in the 
great work which lies ahead. 

Your Committee submits the following resolutions for the con- 
sideration of this Convention: 

1. Resolved, That the Executive Council, after special study, pre- 
pare a canon defining the duties of the Executive Council, the de- 
partments of the Executive Council, and the Executive Secretary, 
and submit the same to the Committee on Canons in ample time 
for its further consideration of the subject, and that the resultant 
canon be presented to the Convention of 1932. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 51 

2. Resolved, That the Executive Council, in conference with its 
departments of Missions and of Finance, report to the Convention 
of 1932 the feasibility of including in the annual budget of the 
diocese an amount for extension or advance work, together with a 
plan therefor and a statement of the principles for the application 
of the plan. 

3. Resolved, That the Department of Missions make a thorough 
study of the entire mission field and of the colored convocation and 
report its findings and recommendations to the Convention of 1932. 

4. Resolved, That the Executive Council appoint a joint com- 
mittee from the Departments of Finance and of Missions to study 
the subject of salaries of missionary clergy, and submit its recom- 
mendations to the Convention of 1932, including a plan for pro- 
gressive increases in salary up to a fixed limit, for clergy deserving 
thereof. 

5. Resolved, That the Executive Council investigate and determine 
upon future disposition or use of each item of abandoned or unused 
diocesan property. 

6. Resolved, That all rents collected on diocesan property by 
missions shall be paid over to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

7. Resolved, That the principle of budgets for each Church school, 
containing local, diocesan and national missionary objectives, is 
approved, and the Department of Religious Education is instructed 
to aid in the establishment of the same. 

8. Resolved, That the Diocese of North Carolina and each church 
thereof for a period of two years, until the Convention of 1933, under- 
take an intensive Social Welfare program of education and service, 
and that the Executive Council appoint a special committee to assist 
the Department of Christian Social Service in the prosecution of this 
purpose.

The Rev. Sidney S. Bost read the report of the Mission to 
the Deaf, the Rev. Roma C. Fortune interpreting the report in 
the sign language. The report is as follows: 

Report of the Mission to the Deaf 

The undersigned Missionary to the Deaf in the Diocese of North 
Carolina desires to make the following brief report of his work 
from May 1, 1930, to May 1, 1931: 

Within this time he has delivered 124 sermons and addresses. 
He has baptized two infants and four adults. He has officiated at 
one marriage and one funeral. 

He presented eight candidates for Confirmation in St. Paul's 
Church, Winston-Salem. 

Omitting the number of persons attending the regular services 
in Durham, he has ministered through service and sermon to 1,345 
persons at the various mission points in the Diocese. 

Total Offerings personally received at his services are $108.24. 
Expenses have been $97.40, leaving a balance on hand of $10.84. 

Our people are greatly encouraged by the erection of Ephphatha 
Church, Durham, N. C, and are looking forward with great pleasure 
to its Consecration on next Sunday, May 17. It is a beautiful Church 
with a seating capacity of about 200. We are very grateful to all 
who had a part in this, the only Church for Deaf people in the 
entire South. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Roma C. Fortune, 

Missionary to the Deaf. 



58 Journal of Proceedings 

The report of the Building Committee of Ephphatha Church 
for the Deaf, Durham, was read by the Rev. Sidney S. Bost, 
as follows: 

Report of Building Committee of 

Ephphatha Church 

(For the Deaf) 

Durham, N. C. 

The undersigned Building Committee of Ephphatha Church in 
Durham, N. C, respectfully reports that this Church has been com- 
pleted, and has been in use for services since Easter Day, 1931. Ap- 
pointment for its Consecration has been made for next Sunday, 
May 17, 1931. This, of course, means that the Church is fully paid 
for. The building itself is of solid brick construction trimmed with 
limestone. It has a seating capacity of about 200, and combines a 
parish house feature along with the main body of the Church. This 
is a Diocesan enterprise, and credit must be given to every one who 
had a part in its accomplishment. It is said to be the only Church in 
the South built purposely for deaf people. 

The cost of the enterprise is as follows: 

Building lot $ 2,500.00 

Paving assessments 391.58 

Contract for building 12,003.00 

Architect's fees 400.00 

Light fixtures 107.00 

Special wiring 15.00 

Total $15,416.58 

To this should be added work and material given by deaf people 
in Durham, as follows: 

Two concrete walks from Church to street, estimated at $75.00. 
Vestry room lockers and prayer desk made by a member of the 
deaf family in Durham, estimated at $65.00. 
This will make a grand total of $15,556.58. 

Several memorials have been installed, and others will be added 
from time to time.

Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 59 



The report was received and the Committee discharged. 

On motion of the Rev. Robert E. Gribbin, the thanks and 
congratulations of the Convention were extended to the Rev. 
Sidney S. Bost and all associates and donors, whose interest 
and efforts have made possible the erection in Durham of our 
unique Church for the deaf people. 

The Rev. Daniel W. Allen read the report of the Diocesan 
Woman's Auxiliary, as follows: 

To the one hundred and fifteenth Annual Convention of the Diocese 
of North Carolina: 

As President of the Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council in 
the Diocese of North Carolina, I beg to submit the following report 
of the work for the year 1930. In this brief summary, I can cheer- 
fully record a lively interest in many phases of the Church's work, 
a fine spirit of loyalty and an encouraging list of work accomplished. 

The Supply Secretary has worked without ceasing. On account 
of unusual economic conditions, the demands have been greater than 
ever before. Her reports show greater response. We recognize this 
department both as a missionary and educational force. 

The Educational Secretary has shown successfully that education 
underlies all of the work of the Church. She has lifted it from the 
realm of duty to that of privilege. 

The Christian Social Service Secretary, with a vision of what this 
work truly is, has made it possible for us to realize to a greater 
degree our duty to our neighbor. Through this department sixty- 
seven children are clothed at the Thompson Orphanage. 

The United Thank Offering Custodian still leads the Fourth 
Province. Though the offering is not as large as hitherto, the 
spirit that prompts the gifts makes up for this deficiency. 

The Treasurer reports an increasing promptness and accuracy; 
her receipts, in spite of the prevailing financial depression, are 
greater than for any previous year in the history of the Auxiliary. 

Several branches show an increase in membership; the attendance 
at Summer Conferences has grown tremendously. The meetings 
of the Executive Board and of the eight Districts reflect an interest 
and deep concern for the welfare of the Diocese. There have been 
four volunteers for the Mission Field; work among the isolated 
has -been inaugurated; the Church Periodical Club is gaining re- 
newed vigor; a branch of the Auxiliary has been started at St. 
Ignatius', Old Sparta, a mission of Calvary Church, Tarboro. The 
pledge of $3,000 for the Advance Work Program of the Diocese 
has been oversubscribed. At the direction of the Chairman, $3,- 
373.85 has been sent to the National Treasurer, Mr. Franklin. 

As president, I have held two Executive Board Meetings, attended 
seven District Meetings, the Provincial Synod at Jackson, Miss., five 



60 Journal of Proceedings 

meetings of the Executive Council of the Diocese and several Parish 
Meetings. In monthly letter to the eighty-four branches and to the 
members of the Executive Board, and also through the Auxiliary 
page of the Carolina Churchman, I have endeavored to direct at- 
tention to matters pertaining not only to the Diocese but to the 
Church at large. I have urged the necessity of subscribing to and 
reading the 8pi?'it of Missions and the Diocesan Paper. 

Realizing that we cannot share with others what we do not possess 
ourselves, I have ventured suggestions to deepen the spiritual life, 
individually and as an organization; advising the adoption of a 
rule of life that includes time for prayer, study and meditation and 
the strengthening and developing of our organizations through 
Corporate Communions, Days of Intercessions and Quiet Days. 

Amounts Contributed in 1930 

Forward Movement $ 4,076.65 

Advance Work 1,961.00 

Social Service 2,392.49 

Religious Education 1,340.94 

Specials 2,467.85 

Central Fund 685.37 

Box Work 5,606.37 

United Thank Offering 5,970.75 

Total : $24,501.42 

This total does not include a large amount spent locally for social 
service not reported through the Diocesan Treasurer. 

The recent Annual Meeting of the Auxiliary, held in Wilson, April 
14-16, was successful from many standpoints. Two resolutions of 
interest adopted there are the inauguration of Summer Volunteer 
Work and Promotion of the Y. P. S. L. It also pledged its full and 
hearty support to the Diocesan Commission on Evangelism in behalf 
of the Mission to be held in this Diocese. 

As the term of Mrs. R. B. Coit on the Executive Council expires 
this month, the Auxiliary respectfully submits for your consideration 
the name of Mrs. John L. Gilmer, of Winston-Salem, to fill this 
vacancy. 

In closing may I remind you that the Auxiliary is always to supple- 
ment the work of the Church — may it never attempt to assert preroga- 
tives that are beyond its jurisdiction; also that before we 
are members of the Auxiliary, we are members of Diocese and 
Parishes and if we fail in our privileges to them then we defeat our 
own purpose. With this idea in mind, I ask that we be used to the 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 61 

utmost of our ability by the Diocese. May you feel a very definite 
responsibility to lead us to success. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rena H. Clark. 

President. 

Bishop Cheshire then took the chair while Bishop Penick 
presented the report of the Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College, Raleigh, as follows : 

Report of the Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College for the Year 1930 

In accordance with the provisions of the Act of Incorporation, 
the President of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College presents herewith the report of this Board for the 
year 1930. 

The revenue account for the year ending June, 1930, copy of which 
is attached and made part of this report, shows an operating profit 
of $6,376.48. This satisfactory condition of current operating funds 
is especially gratifying and reflects high credit upon the cautiousness 
and efficiency of the School management. Every effort has been 
made to administer the School with close attention to economy 
without sacrificing the high standards which have long been asso- 
ciated with the policy of St. Mary's School. 

Since the last Diocesan Convention, there have been two meetings 
of the Board of Trustees. At the June meeting, exhaustive con- 
sideration was given to the report of a special committee composed 
of Dr. Frazer Hood of Davidson College, Dr. N. W. Walker of the 
University of North Carolina, and Dr. Benjamin F. Finney, Vice 
Chancellor of the University of the South. These gentlemen made 
a careful investigation of all phases of St. Mary's and gave an im- 
partial opinion, as a group of educational experts, concerning the 
present life and future policy of the institution. In the light of this 
report, the Trustees made two important decisions: First, that the 
immediate objective of the School be the improvement and develop- 
ment of St. Mary's as a Junior College, and second, that the further 
objective be the expansion of St. Mary's into a Grade A four year 
College for Women. To carry these immediate and ultimate policies 
into effect, a special committee was created and is now at work. At 
the October meeting of the Trustees, much care and thought was 
given to the financial condition of the School, following an exhaustive 
study of this subject by a special committee, assisted by Mr. A. W. 
Tucker, and the School auditor. 

During the present session, 1930-1931, the enrollment comprises 
173 resident students and 53 day and special students. This is the 
lowest registration in several sessions. The capacity of the School 



62 Journal of Proceedings 

is 200 resident students. The enrollment at present is drawn from 
21 states and one foreign country. The breadth of its constituency 
is due to the fact that St. Mary's is the largest of all schools for 
girls in the United States entirely owned and controlled by the 
Episcopal Church, and offers the highest curriculum. It should 
be noted that 55 per cent of the students are taking academic 
work in the College department. 

An analysis of the 1930-1931 enrollment shows the largest number 
of resident students from North Carolina, 80, then follows in order 
Virginia, 30; New York, 11; South Carolina, 10; Florida, 7; Georgia 
and Tennessee, 5 each, with the following states represented: 
Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Illinois, Kentucky, 
Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West 
Virginia. Sixty-six per cent of the girls are members of the Episcopal 
Church. 

Up to this date no unusual events have occurred other than the un- 
veiling of a portrait of Bishop Cheshire by Mr. Clement Strudwick in 
April of this year.

Bishop Penick then resumed the chair. 

The Kev. Warren W. Way, D.D., addressed the Convention 
on the necessity of supporting St. Mary's School and Junior 
College. 

The following resolution was offered by Mr. Alexander B. 
Andrews, in behalf of the Trustees of the Diocese, and was 
adopted by rising vote: 

That this Convention desires to put on record its grateful appre- 
ciation of the legacy of $1,000 by the late Rev. Julian E. Ingle to 
the Permanent Episcopal Fund of the Diocese. 

Mr. John H. Small, Jr., reported for the special Committee 
appointed to consider the report of the Trustees of the Diocese, 
as follows: 

The special committee appointed to consider the report of the 
Trustees of the Diocese reports that it has carefully considered the 
report, finds the same correct, and recommends the adoption of the 
same. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Thomas H. Battle. 
Clarence E\ Frick. 
John H. Small, Jr. 

The report of the special committee, with recommendation, 
was approved. 

The Rev. John L. Jackson presented the report of the Board 
of Managers of the Thompson Orphanage and Training Insti- 
tution, Charlotte, as follows : 

Report of the Board of Managers of the Thompson Orphanage to 
the Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina 
In spite of continued depression and shrinkage of income due to 
many bank failures, the Board of Managers of the Thompson Orphan- 
age can report many reasons for encouragement. The health of the 



64 Journal of Proceedings 

children has been unusually good, there have been no epidemics 
to give concern to our home; there is no debt on the institution; 
the endowment fund has been increased. At the present time, there 
are at the Orphanage, 110 children; twenty are full orphans, 
83 half orphans, 7 with both parents living. From the Diocese 
of N. C, there are 71, from East Carolina, 27, and from Western 
Carolina, 12. During the year, we have had 114 children with a 
total number of days 38,900; 116,700 meals were served. 
Four children have left the home during this year; 2 were returned 
to their mother who had reestablished her home; one boy who had 
graduated from the Charlotte High School has secured a position with 
the Southern Public Utilities Company and one girl has left to take 
special training at the Episcopal Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital 
in Washington, D. C. It is expected that one boy will leave in 
June and he has secured a position as assistant farmer at the State 
Sanitorium. During the year, 10 children have been admitted after 
careful consideration of the needs of their cases and also after two 
weeks in the infirmary where they were given both mental and 
physical tests by our physician. 

During the year six have been confirmed and the total number 
of boys and girls who are communicants of our Church at the Or- 
phanage is now 40. The 24 children in the Osborne Cottage attend 
Sunday School which Miss Nalle holds in the Kindergarten room 
and all of the other boys and girls go to St. Peter's Church School. 
Daily services are held at the Orphanage and there is a flourishing 
Y. P. S. L. training the boys and girls in Church leadership. 

Practically all of our children are now clothed by Auxiliaries, 
Guilds, or individuals from the three dioceses. We hope that there 
shall be a further development of personal interest in these children 
by these organizations and individuals and that they will realize 
their responsibility to act for these children, as interested foster 
parents and to help them in their spiritual and mental development. 

We find there are 23 children from one through six years of age, 
one of whom is only a baby and the other 22 are in Miss Nalle's 
Kindergarten; 50 children from 7 through 12; 37 children from 
13 through 19 and of these, 87 children attend the public school of 
the city of Charlotte. A study has shown that only 35 of the 87 
are correctly graded in the public schools, and that 52 are below 
the proper grades for children of their ages. 

It is felt that one of our great needs is to undertake the study of 
each child and the fitting and preparing them for very definite 
vocations as they grow into manhood and womanhood. 

The Board of Managers desires to express to the loyal supporters 
of our institution throughout the Diocese, their appreciation and to 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 65 

voice a strong appeal for continued support during the coming 
year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Fred W. Glover. 

John L. Jackson. 

The Convention was then addressed by the Rev. William H. 
Wheeler, who described the splendid health conditions at the 
Thompson Orphanage. 

Mr. Arthur H. London reported for the special committee 
appointed to consider the proposed budget for 1932, and the 
reduction of the budget for 1931. This report was referred 
back to the committee for reconsideration. 

The report of the Trustees of the University of the South 
was read by the Rev. John Moore Walker, as follows : 

Report of the Trustees of the University of the South 

The trustees, clerical and lay, from this diocese desire to report 
that they attended the sessions of the Board held in Sewanee last 
June. 

There is the perennial necessity of urging upon our people that 
the University is the property of the Church in the South and 
is to he considered as an arm of the Church's usefulness. It is to 
be hoped that more and more sentiments of interest and pride in 
this institution may grow up among us. To this end, your trustees 
suggest that students from our several congregations have the claims 
and possibilities of Sewanee brought vigorously to their attention. 

During the past year legacies approximating to the sum of $800,000 
have accrued to the University through the generous interest of 
certain of her loyal friends. 

J no. Moore Walker, 
For the Trustees. 

The report of St. Augustine's College, including St. Agnes' 
Hospital and the Bishop Tuttle Training School, was read by 
the Rev. Edgar H. Goold, M.A., as follows : 

Report of St. Augustine's College, Including St. Agnes' Hospital 
and the Bishop Tuttle Memorial School 

During the past year, the sixty-fourth Annual Session, there have 
been enrolled 348 students, including 44 pupil nurses in the St. 
Agnes' Training School and 17 students in the Bishop Tuttle School 
for Religious and Welfare Workers. The decrease in enrollment 
is due to the elimination of the Elementary School as there are 

5 



66 Journal of Proceedings 

in the neighborhood adequate Public School and other facilities 
for elementary instruction. 

The College Department numbers 158; 88 of whom are Freshmen. 
The first four-year College Class will be graduated with appropriate 
degrees at the coming Commencement. After careful inspection 
by the State Department of Education the College work at St. 
Augustine's has been given Standard rating. This recognition is 
of course gratifying to those who have been working for the develop- 
ment of the Institution. 

The Trustees of the Bishop Payne Divinity School, of Petersburg, 
Virginia, our Church Seminary for the training of Negro candidates 
for the ministry, have recently voted that it is desirable to remove 
the School to Raleigh and affiliate it with St. Augustine's College. 
Plans are now being matured with this end in view. 

A class of 22 were confirmed by Bishop Cheshire at his visitation 
during Holy Week. The Lenten offering for Missions amounted 
to a little over $250. 

The usual St. Augustine's Conference for Clergy and Church 
Workers, including a Young People's Conference, will be held early 
in June. 

St. Agnes' Hospital, with its Training School for Nurses, has had 
a busy and fruitful year. Financial conditions have resulted in a 
decided increase in the number of complete charity cases. The 
help given by the Duke Endowment toward meeting this situation 
has been absolutely essential for the continuation of the work. 
During the year there have been about 900 bed patients and about 
23,000 hospital days. Four hundred eighty-one operations have been 
performed. In spite of the hard times the patients themselves paid 
about $14,000. St. Agnes' is recognized on all sides as in the front 
rank of Negro hospitals and Nurses' Training Schools. Last June 
an out-patient clinic was opened in the old Nurses' Home, part 
of which had been remodelled and equipped for that purpose. The 
experiment has proved of real value to many needy people. Seven 
hundred sixty-one patients, with a total of 1,844 visits, have been 
treated there in the past eleven months. 

The Bishop Tuttle School for Church and Welfare Workers, main- 
tained by the National Woman's Auxiliary, has had a capacity en- 
rollment of students during the year. During the past Summer 
the top floor, which was not completed when the building was erected, 
has been finished, so that more resident students can now be accom- 
modated. A Community House in the neighborhood, a gift of Mrs. 
A. B. Hunter, is available for practice work by pupils of the School 
who are doing an excellent work by their services throughout the 
whole Raleigh district. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edgar H. Goold, 

President.

Mr. John H. Small, Jr., read the reports of the Good Samaritan 
Hospital and St. Peter's Hospital, Charlotte, as follows: 

Report of Good Samaritan Hospital for 1930 

The year 1930 saw the work of the Good Samaritan Hospital out- 
grow its buildings to such an extent as to make new ones imperative 
and the Board of Managers found themselves faced with a difficult 
task. Their good friend, the Duke Endowment, came to the rescue 
with a gift of $30,000, the Rosenwald Fund added $15,000 to this and 
with generous gifts from other friends of the hospital a Nurses' 
Home, an Elevator, a memorial Clinic, a Children's ward, maternity 
ward and a Chapel have been built at an outlay of $67,000 and the 
work of the pioneer hospital for Negroes has been launched on a 
new sphere of usefulness for the sick and suffering who constantly 
need its care. The new building was dedicated by Bishop Penick 
in a beautiful service during February, 1931. 

On account of these added facilities, the hospital was able to take 
adequate care of 39 victims of a train wreck a few days after its 
opening. The hospital is most fortunate in having Miss Marion 
Bodey as its Superintendent, who has so splendidly carried the 
hospital through the trying period of building. During this period 
the work was necessarily curtailed but the report for the year shows 

937 patients for 8,629 days. 

314 charity patients for 3,538 days.

The Board of Managers of St. Peter's Hospital are submitting to

1930, to January 1, 1931. 

The hospital has admitted for treatment 1,953 patients for 17,029

The Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence then read his report as Student 
Chaplain at the University of North Carolina, as follows : 

Report of the Work at the University 

In the Summer School of 1930 there were 130 Episcopalians. The 
regular Fall quarter opened with 300 affiliated with the Episcopal 
Church, out of a total enrollment of 2,700. Of these 143 are from 
the diocese of North Carolina, 55 from East Carolina, 41 from Western 
Carolina, and 141 from other states. Thirty-five of the 380 are 
women. 

Services. Two services are held every Sunday, with an extra 
night service once a month. Daily services are held in Lent. At- 
tendance has been good in spite of the fact that about half the 
students leave the Hill every week-end. The Y. P. S. L., composed 
of students, meets every Sunday night, and has done good work. 

Special events. Last June two men were ordained to the Diaconate, 
and two to the priesthood by Bishop Cheshire at the Chapel of the 
Cross. Since the regular term opened to May 1, we have had two 
visits from Bishop Penick, and one from Bishop Darst. We have 
also had a three days' mission on vocation, conducted by Rev. A. C. 
Zabriskie, Rev. T. H. Wright, and three students from the Virginia 
Seminary. We sent three students to the Conference on the Ministry 
at Alexandria in January, and four to the similar conference at 
Sewanee in April. We have a ministerial group at the University, 
which meets from time to time to consider the work of the ministry. 
Contacts. Letters occasionally to all students. 

Freshman reception. 

Visits to freshmen. 

Sunday afternoon teas. 

Meals at the Rectory.

Finances. The student fund for 1931 is $100, and out of this the 
Rector is supposed somehow to entertain 500 students, and to meet 
all office expenses that apply to the student work. The vestry of 
the parish, and the Woman's Service League have supplemented this 
fund as far as they are able, but with the steady increase in students, 
a larger sum is needed. We should have at least $400. 

Of great help in our student work is the unfailing cooperation and 
interest of the University authorities. 

Alfred 3- Lawrence, 

The Rev. Wilmot J. Holmes presented the report of the 
Committee on Theological Education, as follows: 

Your Committee to which was referred the recommendation that 
a deacon should be placed under the supervision of a priest, reports 
that it heartily agrees with this recommendation. 

Inasmuch as his appointment to a cure lies with the Bishop of 
the Diocese, your Committee feels, however, that the matter must 
rest with him. 

Bishop Penick concurs in this arrangement, and places each deacon 
under some priest, in order that, as far as practicable, he may re- 
ceive not only official help, but also such personal and sympathetic 
counsel and help as he can give, and so far as appointments permitting 
such contact are within his appointive power.

On motion of Mr. W. W. Robards, the Convention expressed

74 Journal of Proceedings 

The Rev. Robert B. Owens presented the report of the Com- 
mittee on Canons, as follows: 

Report of the Committee on Canons 

Your Committee on Canons has carefully considered the various 
matters referred to it by the last Convention and reports as follows: 

In regard to the suggestions contained in the report of the Com- 
mittee on Theological Education (found on Page 58 of the Journal 
of 1930), and dealing with the placement of the clergy, we are 
of the opinion that the purpose sought in resolution 2 may be 
attained by the proper observance of Canon XXIII, Sec. 2. This 
section provides that in case of a vacancy "No election of a Rector 
shall be had until the name of the clergyman whom it is proposed 
to elect has been made known to the Bishop and sufficient time has 
been given him to communicate with the Vestry thereon." If Vestries 
would observe this Canon, and consult with their Bishop, and give 
due weight to his godly counsel and judgment, many unfortunate 
choices would be avoided. 

We offer the following resolution: 

Resolved, That when a Parish is, or is about to become vacant, 
the Secretary of the Convention shall immediately send, as infor- 
mation, to the Senior Warden of said Parish a marked copy of 
Canon XXIII. 

II. Your Committee is of the opinion that the matter con- 
tained in Resolution 4 of the same committee is adequately covered 
by Canon 42 of the General Convention, and that it would be in- 
advisable for this Convention to enact different legislation. 

In the report of the Committee on the State of the Church (pages 
78-79) Resolutions 4 and 5 were referred to this Committee. In re- 
gard to Resolution 4 we report as follows: 

III. Inasmuch as the Convention of 1930 had already — before 
the report of the Committee on the State of the Church was received — 
added a new section (1) to Canon XXV, providing machinery whereby 
a feeble Parish may be reduced to the status of a Mission, when it 
shall be deemed advisable, we feel that further legislation is un- 
necessary. We therefore ask to be discharged from further con- 
sideration of this resolution. 

IV. In regard to Resolution 5, which looks to legislation providing 
for proportionate representation in the Convention, we suggest that 
the inequalities complained of may, in large part, be obviated by 
the application of the new Section 1 of Canon XXV, referred to above. 
And since, in the National Church, the Diocese is the unit, and in 
the Diocese the Parish, and not the communicant, is the unit with 
which the Diocese deals, we are of the opinion that unless and until 
the National Church shall adopt the principle of proportionate repre- 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 75 

sentation, it would be unwise for this Diocese to do so. For this, 
and many other reasons, we disapprove of the suggestion, and ask 
to be discharged from further consideration thereof. 

VI. Resolved, That the rules of order be amended by striking out 
the reference to the nomination and election of the Treasurer of the 
Forward Movement Fund. 

VII. In the matter of the Executive Secretary, the Committee 
on Canons is of the opinion that all necessary provisions as to this 
office are included in Canon XVII. 

The resolution adopted this morning requires that there be an 
Executive Secretary, and the Canon leaves his duties to be denned 
by the Executive Council. 

Therefore your Committee asks to be discharged from further con- 
sideration of this matter. 

Respectfully submitted for the Committee, 

Robeet B. Owens, 

Chairman. 

The report of the Committee on Canons, with recommenda- 
tions, was adopted. 

On motion of the Rev. Edgar H. Goold, a rising vote of 
appreciation was extended to Mr. J. Renwick Wilkes for eleven 
years of faithful service as Treasurer of the Forward Move- 
ment Fund. 

Mr. Kemp P. Lewis extended an invitation to the Convention 
to meet in St. Philip's Church, Durham in 1932. Upon motion 
this invitation was accepted. 

Mr. A. L. Purrington offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted: 

Whereas, the clerical and lay delegates to the 115th Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese of North Carolina have greatly enjoyed the 
courtesy and hospitality of the Parish of the Good Shepherd; 

Now; therefore, he it resolved, That the thanks of the Convention 
be extended to the Rector, the Congregation, and the friends of the 
Parish of the Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, N. C, for their de- 
lightful entertainment. 

Mr. Arthur H. London reported for the special committee 
on the budget, as follows : 

Your Committee offers a budget of $68,839 revised from the original 
budget of $73,802 by the elimination of $4,963 in administration 
expense as suggested by a special Committee on the office of Execu- 
tive Secretary.

discretion of the Executive Council:

The Rev. Theodore Partrick, Jr., then presented his report 
as Lenten Offering Secretary, announcing a total offering for 
1931 of $5,332.76 as compared with $6,147.41 in 1930. 82 
white and 17 colored schools took part in the offering, while 
72 white and 12 colored schools participated in 1930.

placed at the diocese's disposal for the improvement of the 
said property.

APPENDIX A 



ADDRESSES OF THE BISHOPS 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP 

Brethren of the Clery and Laity: 

I welcome you to another annual Convention of the Diocese 
of North Carolina. 

Twenty years ago we met in this church. During these twenty 
years there has been no great increase in the number of our 
clergy or of our congregations. We had then so many scattered 
and weak missions that we have not been able greatly to increase 
their number. But, in the number of our communicants and 
baptized persons reported, we have an increase of about fifty 
per cent in each class. 

We have had no loss among our clergy by death during the 
year just passed, though many of our godly laymen and women 
have passed to their rest and their reward. May their example 
and their memory help us to be more diligent and more earnest 
in following in their steps, as they followed in the steps of their 
Master and ours. 

My official acts for the year 1930 were as follows :

90 Addresses of the Bishops 

The fields of work of the Clergy are the same as at our last 
Convention except as given below:

Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 91 

field, and St. Clement's Church, Ringwood, and has become 
Rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Ealeigh, since 
November 1, 1930. 

I feel that there is little more for me to say. My services 
to the Diocese have not been such as I have desired. As I said 
in my Convention Address last year I have undertaken, as my 
part of the Episcopal Administration, the keeping of the 
Register of the Clergy and of their admission, and transfer ; the 
register of Confirmations; and the register of the Postulants 
and Candidates for Holy Orders; also the immediate pastoral 
oversight and administration of about one-third of the parishes 
and missions of the diocese. So far as the records above men- 
tioned are concerned, I think I have kept them as well as 
another would have done. I am sorry to record the fact that 
my visitations and ministrations in the missions and parishes 
have been greatly interrupted by sickness, and the weakness 
incident to old age. I believe I have not failed to visit any 
church where there were candidates for Confirmation, except 
one parish where Bishop Penick kindly performed the duty 
for me. Indeed I failed to visit not more than three or four 
places, and those small and weak congregations. But I have 
always felt that the small and weak congregations demand the 
special attention and regard of the Bishop, and many of the 
happiest memories of my work are associated with such churches. 
I have many friends in the scattered country missions, and 
it is with great regret that I find myself unable to keep up my 
visits to them. Of course, where candidates for Confirmation 
are awaiting me, they demand my presence, and I must give 
those places the preference, but it is with special regret that I 
recall those smaller and weaker churches which I failed to 
visit during the year covered by this report of my services. 

It is not possible to speak adequately in this address of all 
the faithful laymen and women, whose saintly and useful lives 
have gone to the building up of God's Kingdom in this Diocese, 
or even to speak of them at all. I will however, venture at this 
time to speak of one who was taken from us some years ago, 
but whom I had specially recalled to my memory by a very 



92 Addresses of the Bishops 

beautiful and impressive service in which it was my privilege 
to officiate during the year past. 

On the Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity, October 5, 1930, in 
St. Paul's Church, Winston-Salem, I dedicated a beautiful 
window to the memory of the late John Cameron Buxton, first 
Senior Warden of that Parish, and the founder of the Church 
in Winston-Salem in such a real sense as I have never known 
any other man to be. On account of my long and affectionate 
relationship with him, his family and the Rev. Mr. Gribbin, 
Rector of the Parish, desired me to conduct the service, and it 
was a deeply felt gratification to me to comply with that request. 
I was perhaps the oldest, certainly one of the oldest, of his 
surviving friends, our friendship having lasted from his college 
days until his departure from this life. 

Mr. Buxton came to Winston about the year 1875, to 
begin the practice of law. At that time no regular services 
had ever been held in Winston by any Clergyman of our 
Church. In May of 1875 there were but four communicants. 
The coming of Mr. Buxton exactly synchronizes with the begin- 
ning of our Church in that place. He was the enthusiastic and 
indefatigable leader in organizing the parish, in building the 
church, and the strong support of the Rector in all good works. 
In our Diocesan Conventions, and later on in the General Con- 
ventions, from 1901 to his last in 1916, a few months before his 
death, with the exception of that of 1907, he was a striking 
figure and a faithful and useful member. He gave not only his 
money and his time and his personal service, but he gave his 
heart to the Church. In his personal devotion and in sentiment 
and affection for the Church I put no man of our many noble 
laymen before him. It is a happy coincidence that the new 
St. Paul's Church, consecrated on the first Sunday in October, 
1929, stands upon the site of Mr. Buxton's residence, the 
noblest location in what is now the City of Winston. And 
this new St. Paul's Church is the noblest church which I have 
seen in Worth Carolina. The architect, Mr. Cram, certainly one 
of the very highest of his profession in America, assured me 
that he considered it one of the very best of his works. In this 
great and beautiful Church it was my privilege to dedicate a 



Diocese of Worth Carolina, 1931 93 

window to the loving memory of my dear friend and brother, 
and to speak of his life and work, as best I could. 

As I have indulged my personal feelings in thus paying 
honor to one of the best of our faithful laymen de- 
parted, I cannot fail to record the great loss the Diocese has 
had to lament in the departure of another since our last meet- 
ing; though in this case my close personal relationship puts 
a restraint upon my utterances. May 20, at his home in Tar- 
borough, passed from this life to the life beyond, Samuel 
Simpson Wash, having a few weeks before completed his eighty- 
second year. My acquaintance with him began very nearly 
seventy years before his death, for more than fifty-six years 
I knew him on terms of the nearest intimacy and mutual af- 
fection. He grew up under the influence of the Rev. Dr. 
Curtis of St. Matthew's Church, Hillsboro; his early manhood 
was under the pastoral instruction of the Rev. Dr. Watson of 
St. James' Church, Wilmington; his maturity and later years 
until he was past fifty, in close intimacy with the Rev. Dr. 
Cheshire of Calvary Church, Tarborough, whose daughter he 
married. I loved to think that I could see the mark of these 
three, very different, but all great characters, in the life and 
work of Mr. Wash, for he reverenced and loved them all. 
I do not think it quite becoming in me to undertake a general 
estimate of his character. I could not be expected to speak 
with detached and calm judgment and cool discrimination. 
I will trust myself to mention only some facts which illustrate 
his life and work. He was by nature warm and enthusiastic, 
impulsive, given to respond promptly to any call which ap- 
pealed to him; and thus a natural leader, one who attracted 
attention, and inspired others to follow him. Up to about 
1886, as it seems to me, this impulse to aggressive leadership 
in the Church had shown itself only in local parochial affairs. 
I date the beginning of his larger extra-parochial activity from 
our attendance upon the General Convention of 1886 in Chicago. 
There we met Mr. James Houghteling and were entertained 
by his close family connections. We were made acquainted 
with the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, which Mr. Houghteling 
had founded. Mr. Wash became deeply interested; and when 



94 Addeesses of the Bishops 

it had grown to be all but coterminous with the National 
Church he became a member of the National Council of the 
Brotherhood, and took an active part in its work throughout 
the country. But he began with a deep conviction of his personal 
obligation to participate in the work of bringing men to Christ. 

There was in Edgecombe County at that time but one mis- 
sion of his Parish. A few years before this time, a young girl 
educated at St. Mary's School, and brought to the knowledge 
of the Church, and to confirmation there, began a Sunday 
school in her neighborhood, some ten miles in the country, 
calling to her assistance friends from Calvary Church, Tar- 
borough. This had developed into a mission of the parish, 
and was called St. Mary's, after St. Mary's School. In 1886 
it had a small building, and had seven communicants. Mr. 
Nash threw himself into this work; and from this beginning 
was developed the remarkable country work in Edgecombe. He 
soon established two other missions, Grace Memorial and 
St. Matthew's, in the same section. When in 1909 the Rev. 
Bertram E. Brown became Hector of Calvary Church, he saw 
the possibilities of this work, and with remarkable zeal and 
ability he drew other laymen into cooperation, and established 
similar missions in other parts of the county, and in the sub- 
urbs of Tarborough. It is difficult to obtain accurate statistics 
of such scattered rural work; but the one small church and 
seven communicants have grown into seven churches in the 
county, from nine to twenty miles distant from Tarborough; 
four of which in 19 30 reported one hundred and ninety-one 
communicants ; while three of the four show a total enrollment 
of over two hundred in their Church Schools. For many years, 
while only horse-drawn vehicles over country roads were the 
means of transportation, Mr. Nash hardly once or twice dur- 
ing the course of a year ate dinner at home on a Sunday. After 
the early celebration and a hasty breakfast he would start for 
his nearest mission ; and having conducted three Sunday schools 
and three services in three churches, would barely reach home 
in time for supper. 

In this unselfish and untiring service he so endeared him- 
self to the country people of Edgecombe, that he was constantly 



Diocese of Worth Carolina, 1931 95 

appealed to by them, without regard to their religious con- 
nections, for help and sympathy in their necessity and in their 
troubles, to visit the sick, to bury the dead, and, in cases of 
emergency, where a Clergyman could not be had, to administer 
Baptism to the sick and the dying. One week before his death, 
after his physician had told him that he must go to bed and 
stay there, he drove fifteen miles into the country to answer a 
call of this kind. It was the last act of a long and unselfish 
life of service to God's Church and God's people. 

I have not referred to the general administration of the 
Diocese and of our Diocesan institutions. They are in abler 
and younger hands, and I am thankful to know that they no 
longer need my care. I am content to confine my labors within 
the restricted sphere which I have specified. I hope I may be 
able to give effective oversight to these small matters. In all 
others I am content to serve and to rejoice in seeing the Diocese 
so well guided and shepherded.

ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP COADJUTOR 



The Journal of my official acts which is herewith appended 
may he briefly tabulated as follows : 

Within the Diocese I have made 64 visitations; celebrated the 
Holy Communion 37 times; delivered 127 sermons; baptized 
4 infants; officiated at 4 marriages and 9 funerals and 9 other 
services; confirmed 311 persons; ordained 1 candidate for Holy 
Orders to the Diaconate; participated in 40 individual and 
group conferences; attended 53 committee meetings; issued 
licenses to 12 lay readers and met twice with the Board of 
Examining Chaplains. I also preached in two of the Presby- 
terian churches of Charlotte and addressed the Potomac Synod 
of the Dutch Reformed Church and the local Men's Club of 
St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church. Outside the Diocese I 
celebrated the Holy Communion 8 times; officiated at 13 other 
services; baptized 1 infant; attended 2 conferences and 9 com- 
mittee meetings; delivered 25 sermons and addresses and 16 
lectures. As one of the Seventy appointed by the National Com- 
mission on Evangelism many of my engagements have been 
at schools and colleges. For two weeks last August I served 
as Director of the Adult Division of the Sewanee Summer Train- 
ing School. 

Altogether it was a busy year in the Church unmarked by any 
single event of unusual significance but characterized, I hope, 
by that steady march of routine duties that make for substantial 
progress and Christian nurture. 

I wish that time would allow me to acknowledge the in- 
numerable acts of kindness and courtesy that have been heaped 
upon my office by Church members and other friends in all parts 
of the Diocese. The unfailing graciousness of clergy and lay- 
men alike, together with their quick responsiveness to the slight- 
est show of leadership, constitute a joy in fellowship that even 
the consciousness of imperfect and, indeed, unworthy service 
cannot entirely take away. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 97 

I would like to comment on many phases of our corporate life 
but necessary brevity allows me only to mention some of them. 
The faithfulness of the clergy at a time when more is being 
demanded of them in the way of creative thought and construc- 
tive leadership than ever before; the high courage and loyalty 
of the great body of laymen under unprecedented conditions of 
anxiety and strain ; the cautious management of our institutions 
with reduced budgets but without reduction of scope and in- 
fluence; a deepening consciousness of responsibility and initia- 
tive on the part of our colored brethren; the intelligent enthus- 
iasm of our Young People's Service League; the increased 
activity of our Church in student centers; the glowing deeds 
and liberal gifts of the Woman's Auxiliary and other national 
organizations. For these and many other evidences of the 
Holy Spirit's moving in the hearts and consciences of our people 
we give God the praise and confidently press forward to new 
goals and tasks. 

The Office of Executive Secretary 

This Convention, in my opinion, should give careful thought 
to the office of the Executive Secretary of the Diocesan Executive 
Council. Four years ago this subject was thoroughly debated 
by the Convention in Burlington and a decision was made that 
this office should be created. You will recall that at the time 
some earnest doubts were expressed concerning the need for 
such a diocesan officer. This was to be expected since any in- 
novation is usually accompanied by uncertainty and misgivings, 
especially when it involves the discontinuance of established 
forms of administration and the adoption of novel and untried 
methods. The conscientious objections of conservatism, how- 
ever, were magnanimously waived in favor of the experiment. 
The intervening years, in my judgment have abundantly justi- 
fied the wisdom of that decision. Without reference to the per- 
sonal qualifications of the first incumbent it seems to me that the 
value, and indeed, the necessity of the office under the existing 
form of diocesan administration has been sufficiently demon- 
strated. I would not detract from its importance by appearing 
to defend or applaud it. I do feel though that the time has

arrived when the Convention should regard its conviction con- 
cerning this office and make provision for its permanence. At 
present it is subject to the hazard of discontinuance contingent 
upon the results of the Forward Movement canvass which vary 
from year to year. So long as this uncertainty exists the in- 
cumbent is restricted in projecting plans requiring a period 
of years for their fulfillment and compels the Diocese to live 
from hand to mouth and from day to day without a real pro- 
gram with fore-shortening vision and a minimum of venture 
for Christ. To this serious consideration should be added the 
matter of injustice to the incumbent who cannot in all fairness 
be expected to occupy with enthusiasm and effectiveness a po- 
sition that is likely to be abandoned at any time. Mr. Haines' 
complete disregard of these handicaps of his office and personal 
hazards deserves our heartiest appreciation. Since this Con- 
vention created the office of Executive Secretary, in my judg- 
ment, it should now make provision for its continuance or per- 
manence in a way that will remove it from the realm of question- 
ing and debate. I emphatically record my own conviction that 
so long as we have a Diocesan Executive Council with its several 
departments the office of Executive Secretary to unify and pro- 
mote the work of these several departments is necessary. 

Advance Work Program 

Special attention, I hope, will be given to the report of the 
Committee on the Advance Work Program. The two projects 
adopted last year, representing a total objective of $12,000, 
have been presented to the diocese through the combined efforts 
of the special committee, the Field and Publicity Department, 
and a series of addresses by the Bishop of Arizona at six strategic 
points. Despite many unfavorable conditions, progress has been 
made toward our accepted goal, especially by the Woman's Aux- 
iliary, whose cooperation, indeed, whose leadership in this move- 
ment has been notably aggressive and successful. We are on 
record before the whole Church, not with a pledge in any definite 
sum, but with an official commitment to a serious participation 
in the general plan, and an earnest effort to do our utmost to real- 
ize our expectancy. Where the two projects have been thorough- 
ly explained, and the justice of their appeal has been allowed to 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1931 99 

speak for itself, our people have listened sympathetically and 
have responded with characteristic generosity. The motive of 
the Advance Work Program is very clear. It is that of simple 
justice. Christ said to His disciples : "When I sent you forth, 
lacked ye anything?" And they answered "Nothing." The 
Church asks the same question of her missionaries, and they 
reply : "Yes, we lack a minimum equipment." Is it not a matter 
of ordinary fair play towards those who have given their lives, 
and who represent us on many hazardous missionary fronts, to 
place tools in their hands lest their sacrifice be poured out for 
lack of material things that we might supply? Our diocesan 
promise to exert ourselves in behalf of this urgent program will 
have been fulfilled when every clergyman has accepted and 
exercised real leadership in the matter, and when every con- 
gregation after instruction, has been given the opportunity to 
share in this privilege with intelligent interest, its prayers and 
its gifts. 

The Teaching Mission 

Finally, let me mention the most important movement that 
has been undertaken by our Church since the Bishops' Crusade. 
I refer to the Teaching Mission on the Great Commission. This 
movement was authorized last Fall by the Synod of the Fourth 
Province, and is to be conducted on a Province-wide scale soon 
after the General Convention. Its aim is to re-present the claim 
upon us of Christ's final imperative to "go into all the world and 
preach the Gospel to every creature." The need of some such 
movement is obvious to the most casual observer of the Church's 
life. Allowing 33 years as the average span of a generation, it 
is approximately true that one-third of our clergy, and one-third 
of our present Church membership did not feel the impact of 
that great revival in 1919 known as the Nation Wide Campaign. 
The broad vision of Christ's kingdom that was opened to us 
at that time has been contracting ever since. The power and 
vitality of that great experience has been gradually declining. 
Our missionary spirit is showing symptoms of anaemia. Our 
Church needs to be born again. The timeliness of this Teach- 
ing Mission makes us think that the Holy Spirit has prompted 
it. For man's extremity has always been God's opportunity. 



100 Addresses of the Bishops 

Students of modern history and experienced men of business 
are saying deliberately that the economic conditions are prac- 
tically, if not altogether without precedent. Frustration, 
anxiety, and disappointment are harassing multitudes of people 
and striking fear to their hearts. Along with the collapse of 
a materialistic system, the religious convictions of even faithful 
people are being shaken. 

Under such trying and perplexing circumstances what ought 
the Church to do? Can we sit idly by, as detached and un- 
interested observers of a situation that cries for remedy and 
action? It is not enough to be sentimentally optimistic and to 
say our prayers in the hope that God will send relief like the 
gentle dew from heaven. The first reaction to adversity is com- 
plaint and resentment. We have had enough of that, and have 
passed beyond that stage. The second reaction is an open-eyed 
admission and recognition of hard facts. That is a more whole- 
some attitude. The third stage to which we have now come, is 
one of hard thought, originality, venturesomeness, for these 
are the qualities and attitudes that find seeds of renewal and 
fresh hope in a hopeless situation. 

The Teaching Mission seems to offer the impetus and inspi- 
ration that we so sorely need. It looks like God's answer to our 
extremity. It promises to be full of evangelistic-missionary 
vitality that should reach into every nook and corner of our 
diocese. Already 11 of the 15, dioceses of the Fourth Province 
have given it their enthusiastic endorsement. Worth Carolina 
is already participating in the carefully laid plans for the 
Mission, and is sending a full quota of men to the Regional 
School for training as missioners. The expense of the movement 
will be about $10,000, of which amount, our share is $500. 1 
earnestly hope that this Convention will give its hearty endorse- 
ment to the Teaching Mission, and will participate in all the 
plans as they affect our diocese.

REPORTS OF THE TREASURERS 



THE TREASURER'S REPORT 



FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED JANUARY 31, 1931 



Mr. H. M. London, Treasurer, 
Diocese of North Carolina, 
Raleigh, N. C. 

Dear Sir: 

As requested, we have audited your accounts as Treasurer of the 
DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA for the year ended January 31, 1931. 
Our report follows, consisting of the various statements listed in the index 
on the next page. 

During the year under review a savings account balance was discovered 
at the Mechanics Savings Bank, Raleigh, N. C, in the name of Elkin 
Mission, which, with interest, amounted to $143.57. No record of this 
account has heretofore appeared on your books. 

As in previous reports, we have included transactions in this report 
which actually occurred after January 31st, the ending of your year, but 
were applicable to the current year under review. 

We certify that the securities, as herein enumerated, were on hand, that 
the receipts as shown were as recorded on the books, and that the dis- 
bursements were supported by paid bank checks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. L. Steele & Company, 
Certified Public Accountants. 

By R. L. Steele, C. P. A. 
Raleigh, N. C.

REPORT OF THE TREASURER OF THE 
FORWARD MOVEMENT FUND 



FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED JANUARY 31, 1931 

February 23, 1931. 
Mr. J. Renwick Wilkes, 

Treasurer, Forward Movement Fund, 

Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, 

Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to engagement we have made an audit of the books of the 
Forward Movement Fund, Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, 
J. R. Wilkes, Treasurer, for the year ended January 31, 1931, and we 
submit herewith a statement of cash receipts and disbursements and 
attached schedules No. 1, No. 2. 

Treasurer's Balance; — $5,291.35. 

This balance on hand as presented in Exhibit "A," sheet No. 3, is 
shown in detail in schedule No. 2. We secured from the depository 
bank a certificate of amount on deposit at January 31, 1931, and recon- 
ciled this with the Treasurer's balance as presented in the schedule 
referred to above. 

Cash Receipts— $100,098.88. 

Cash Disbursements — $104,847.00. 

All receipts were traced into the bank account and all disbursements 
examined in detail in the preparation of the statement of cash receipts 
and disbursements. 

The statement of amounts credited to churches, schedule No. 1, 
includes certain credits, which are not included in the cash receipts 
as these funds were never received by the Treasurer but were 
paid direct. 

Church quotas shown by individual ledger were $66,680.50 for white 
churches and $1,544.00 for colored churches. Receipts on quotas 
shown by individual ledger were $60,904.88 for white churches and 
$1,325.68 for colored churches. 

We desire to express our appreciation for the assistance given us 
during our examination. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. Latimer Brown & Co. 
[Seal] By W. Latimer Brown, 

Certified Public Accountant.

JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS 



FIRST DAY 

Durham, N". C., May 10, 1932. 

The one hundred and sixteenth Annual Convention of the 
Diocese of North Carolina was held in St. Philip's Church, Dur- 
ham, N". C, beginning Tuesday, May 10, 1932. 

The Holy Communion was celebrated in St. Philip's Church 
at 7:30 a.m., the Bishop of the Diocese officiating, assisted by 
the Bishop Coadjutor and the Rev. Sidney S. Bost. 

At 9 :40 a.m. Morning Prayer was said in St. Philip's Church 
by the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence and the Rev. Warren W. 
Way, D.D. The Bishop of the Diocese read the lessons. The 
offerings of the Congregation were received for the New York 
Bible and Common Prayer Book Society. 

The Bishop Coadjutor called the Convention to order at 
10:40 a.m., and the roll was called by the secretary; 45 clergy, 
and 78 delegates from 28 parishes and 10 organized missions 
were present and answered to their names. A quorum being 
present, the Chairman declared the Convention duly organized. 
The Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence was elected Secretary, and the 
Rev. Daniel W. Allen was appointed Assistant Secretary. 

On motion of the Rev. Sidney S. Bost, the hours of the Con- 
vention were fixed according to the printed program. 

The Chairman appointed the Committee on Elections as 
follows : The Rev. John P. Hamaker, the Rev. Royal G. Shan- 
nonhouse, Mr. J. C. Barron, Mr. J. C. Spicer, Mr. Isaac 
London. To this committee were referred several incomplete

dix A.)

24 Journal of Proceedings 

Mecum was referred to a special committee to report later to 
the Convention. The Chairman appointed as members of this 
committee the Rev. Jean A. Vache, the Rev. Alfred S. Law- 
rence, Mr. Julius A. Mackie, Mr. Jack W. Glenn, Mr. H. I. 
Coffield, Mr. J. H. Cutter, Mr. J. R. Donnell. 

The addresses of the Bishops were referred to the Committee 
on the State of the Church. 

The Rev. Milton A. Barber, S.T.D., read the report of the 
Standing Committee of the Diocese, as follows: 

Report of the Standing Committee! for 1931 

During 1931 the Standing Committee held only three meetings, 
and they were on the following dates: January 26;; May 22; Decem- 
ber 30. 

January 26 — Odell G. Harris was recommended to the 
Bishop for admission as a Candidate for Holy Orders. And consent 
was given to the Diocese of Minnesota to elect a bishop coadjutor 
on the ground of extent of Diocesan Work. 

At this meeting the schedule of appropriations from the Holt 
Fund for 1931, as submitted by the Bishop and Bishop Coadjutor, 
was approved. There was considerable discussion about the pro- 
posed schedule; and the Committee, by formal resolution, went 
on record on two points: 

First. That the Standing Committee is opposed to the granting 
of any appropriation from the Holt Fund to an organized parish, 
except in case of extreme necessity, and where the Standing Com- 
mittee has been consulted before the general schedule of appropria- 
tions has been submitted to it for its approval. 

Second. That there are great inequalities in the salaries of 
the beneficiaries of the Holt Fund, so much so that this Committee 
thinks that these inequalities should be adjusted before future 
schedules of appropriations from the Fund are submitted to them 
for approval ; and that this Committee suggests that married mission- 
aries, with dependent children, should receive substantially higher 
salaries than others; and that next should come those married, 
but without dependent children; and then unmarried mission- 
aries. 

A copy of this action was sent to the Bishop and Bishop Coad- 
jutor. 

May 22. This being the first meeting of the Standing Committee 
reelected by the last Diocesan Convention, the Committee was 
duly organized by the election of the Rev. Milton A. Barber, S.T.D., 
as President and of Mr. Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr., as Secretary. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 25 

Then the Rev. Thomas Simons Clarkson and the Rev. Lewis Page 
Spencer, Deacons, were recommended to the Bishop for Ordination 
to the Priesthood. And Andrew Dallam Milstead was recommended 
to the Bishop for Ordination to the Diaconate. Consent was also 
given to the Consecration of the Rev. Stephen Edwards Keeler, D.D., 
to be the Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Minnesota. And 
consent was given to the Diocese of Connecticut to elect a 
Bishop Coadjutor on the ground of extent of Diocesan Work. 

December 30. The proposed schedule of appropriations from the 
Holt Fund for 1932 was submitted by the Bishop and Bishop 
Coadjutor. The Committee gave its approval to the schedule of 
appropriations as submitted by the Bishops. And the Bishops were 
authorized to make any necessary adjustments of the appropriations 
that might arise: to reduce any items in case the income is not 
equal to the appropriations, and to expend any unused balance of 
the income from the Fund for 1932, should the income from the 
Fund be more than the total of the appropriations. 

At this meeting the Rev. Ernest McGerson Winborne, Deacon, 
was recommended to the Bishop for Ordination to the Priesthood. 
And John Wesley Leathers and James Edwin Bethea were recom- 
mended to the Bishop for admission as Candidates for Holy Orders. 
In compliance with the request of the Diocese of Newark, consent 
was given to said Diocese to elect a Bishop Coadjutor. 

In conclusion, the Standing Committee would respectfully suggest 
to the Bishop and Bishop Coadjutor that they instruct all their 
Postulants that they should be admitted as Candidates for Holy 
Orders before they enter upon their course at a theological seminary 
for their immediate preparation for the Sacred Ministry. As it 
is now, these Postulants send in their applications very irregularly, 
some of them five or six months after they have begun their sem- 
inary course. 

If the Bishops would see to it that these Postulants, ready for 
the seminary, sent in their applications for admission as Candidates 
for Holy Orders in September or October, they could all be acted on 
at a meeting of the Standing Committee in October. When these 
Postulants delay being admitted as Candidates for Holy Orders it 
means that in their senior year at the seminary they ask the Stand- 
ing Committee to shorten their time as Candidates, and recommend 
them to the Bishop for Ordination to the Diaconate. Since the 
Church has given us a law for our guidance and regulation in the 
matter, it would be better for all concerned if that law were obeyed 
in spirit and in letter. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

Milton A. Barber, President.

The Rev. Theodore Partrick, Jr., read the report of the

Repoet of the; Diocesan Executive Council 

The Executive Council of the Diocese met in Greensboro, June

At the second meeting of the Executive Council the resignation

expire with the 1932 Convention. The Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence 
was elected to fill the unexpired term of the Rev. John Moore Walker, 
who left the Diocese on September 15th. Mr. John H. Small, Jr., was 
appointed to the chairmanship of the department of Christian Social 
Service, succeeding Mr. Walker. Dr. Wade R. Brown was assigned 
to the department of Missions and Church Extention. Mr. Fred 
W. Glover was transferred to the department of Finance. The Rev. 
Alfred S. Lawrence was assigned to the department of Christian 
Social Service. 

Associate members of the departments were elected during the 
year, and confirmed by the Council, as follows: Field and Public- 
ity: The Rev. Joseph N. Bynum, and Messrs. Wade R. Brown, 
Arthur H. London, J. Russell Clark, Samuel P. Collier and John 
H. Small, Jr. Missions and Church Extension: The Rev. Messrs.

J. Reginald Mallett, Alfred S. Lawrence, Joseph N. Bynum, and

and John P. Watters, Misses Bess Hensel and Rosalie Wilson, The 
Rev. Messrs. Samuel W. Hale, J. Reginald Mallett, Elwood L. 
Haines, Howard S. Hartzell, and Messrs. John S. Holmes and George 
C. Pollard. Messrs. Hale, Mallett and Haines having left the

Bynum, and I. Harding Hughes were elected in their stead. 
Christian Social Service: The Rev. Messrs. Daniel W. Allen and 
I. Harding Hughes, Mrs, Louise Bromley, and Miss Corinna Gant. 

Six meetings of the Council were held during the year, Bishop 
Penick presiding at all of the sessions. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 27 

At the August 21 meeting of the Council Bishop Penick reported 
that he had received the resignation of the Rev. Elwood L. Haines 
as Executive Secretary, effective September 1, 1931, and had ac- 
cepted it on behalf of the Council. A special committee appointed 
by the Bishop to consider this action, brought in the following 
resolutions: 

1. That we approve the action of the Chairman of the Executive 
Council in accepting the resignation of the Rev. Elwood L. Haines 
as Executive Secretary. 

2. That we record our appreciation of the valuable service ren- 
dered by Mr. Haines as Executive Secretary during the past three 
years. His untiring energy in prosecuting the work of his office, 
and his unfailing courtesy and tactfulness in every contact with 
clergy and laity have made him singularly useful. By his wise 
leadership and powers of initiation he has given the Diocese such a 
demonstration of the value of his office that it seems well nigh 
indispensable. 

3. Mr. Haines and his family will carry to their new home the 
esteem and affection of the people of the Diocese, and a keen inter- 
est in their future. 

The Rev. Theodore Partrick, Jr., was elected secretary and treas- 
urer of the Council, to succeed Mr. Haines. 

At the June, 1931, meeting of the Council Mr. J. Renwick Wilkes 
was elected treasurer of the Forward Movement Fund, for the re- 
mainder of the year. At the January, 1932, meeting of the Council 
it was decided to continue the plan of having separate treasurers 
for the Diocese and the Forward Movement Fund, and Mr. J. R. 
Wilkes was elected treasurer of the latter fund for the year 1932. 

The Council did not feel that the returns from the Every Member 
Canvass for the 1932 budget justified it in electing a successor to 
the Rev. Elwood L. Haines as Executive Secretary, and previous 
efforts to secure a successor were temporarily abandoned. The 
work hitherto done by the Executive Secretary has been distributed 
among the departments. 

Finance Department 

The final results of the Every Member Canvass of 1931 showed 
that the total sum of $49,478 was pledged for the year 1932. The 
budget, as approved by the Diocesan Convention of 1931, called for 
a total of $68,839. This wide discrepancy of $19,361 created a 
situation that gave much concern to the Finance Department and to 
the Council. A number of churches made no pledge for the year 
1932, but promised to pay in accordance with their ability. 

At the January, 1932, meeting of the Council, it was deemed 
necessary to make drastic reductions in the 1932 budget of $68,839, 



28 Journal of Proceedings 

as adopted by the 1931 Convention. The budget for the current 
year was reduced to $53,875.74. The items are as follows: 

Missions and Church Extension $12,045.00 

Religious Education 2,850.00 

Field and Publicity 650.00 

Thompson Orphanage 10,000.00 

Administration Expense 1,085.00 

Provincial Synod 415.00 

St. Mary's House : 554.00

Appropriation 3,000.00 7,250.00 

General Church 16,000.00 

Diocesan Debt 2,500.00 

Vade Mecum 376.74 

Contingent Fund 150.00 

Total $52,875.74 

The Diocesan budget for 1933, and recommended to the Conven- 
tion for adoption, is as follows: 

Missions and Church Extension $13,122.35 

Religious Education 2,850.00 

Field and Publicity 700.00 

Christian Social Service 10,100.00 

Administration Expense : 1,400.00 

General Church 16,000.00 

Provincial Assessment 415.00 

St. Mary's School 3,000.00 

St. Mary's House, N. C. C. W 300.00 

Anticipated deficit, unpaid appropriations of prior 

' years 2,000.00 

Total $49,887.35 

Department of Missions and Church Extension 

The great concern of the Department of Missions and Church 
Extension during the past year has been that of maintaining the 
existing work on reduced income without impairing the efficiency. 
Capt. Mallette of the Church Army who did such excellent work 
at Macclesfield was allowed to retire from the field on April 1. The 
Rev. Jacob R. Jones has resigned as priest in charge of All Saints' 
Mission at Warrenton, and no one has been appointed in his place. 

The Bishop's report will give the changes among the clergy in the 
Diocese which affect the status of the missionary work. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 29 

The workers have accepted cheerfully the adjustments which had 
to be made in the budget, and this spirit on their part is one of 
the most hopeful signs noticed in the missionary work in the Diocese. 

Department of Field and Publicity 

Upon the resignation of the Rev. Elwood L. Haines on September 1, 
1931, the Field and Publicity departments took over the responsi- 
bility of preparing for and conducting the fall campaign and Every 
Member Canvass. The usual October Conference of clergy and 
laity was held in the parish house of Holy Trinity, Greensboro. 
Throughout the months of September, October, November, and De- 
cember diligent effort was made to stimulate interest in the Church's 
program and to keep alive the consciousness of stewardship. 

The budget for 1932 as approved by the Convention of 1931 called 
for a total of $68,839. The total amount promised by parishes and 
missions against this budget was $49,478, or a deficit of $19,361. 
Quite a number of Churches made no pledge but promised to con- 
tribute during the year in accordance with their ability. 

The chief work of the Publicity department during the year was 
the sponsoring and assisting in the editing of the November issue 
of The Carolina Churchman. About 5,000 copies of this issue were 
mailed to the Communicant families and individuals in the Diocese. 
We think the paper was widely read and it must have been a valu- 
able factor in the measurable success of the campaign in a year 
when people are less prosperous than in former years. 

Department of Religious Education 

The Advent Epiphany Offering towards Mr. Fortune's salary was 
the gift of thirty Sunday Schools, totaling $561.41, and was $20 in- 
crease over last year. Mr. Elliott F. Duncan of Mayodan will 
have charge of this in the coming year. 

The Rev. I. Harding Hughes did notable work in promoting the 
Lenten Offering and planning for the four Presentation Services with 
the assistance of Messrs. F. Craighill Brown, Joseph N. Bynum, Rob- 
ert E. Roe and Fred B. Drane. The four services were held the sec- 
ond Sunday after Easter at Good Shepherd, Raleigh; Good Shepherd, 
Rocky Mount; St. Mary's, High Point; and St. Peter's, Charlotte. 
About 2,000 persons attended and pageants were well presented for 
our first trial. $4,398.05 from every Sunday School of the Diocese 
except one white one that had no offering; also $34.41 loose offer- 
ing at three of these services was given to the Emergency Fund. 

Adult Education under Rev. Francis H. Craighill's leadership is 
striving to promote Bible classes and mission study classes through- 
out the Diocese. 



30 Journal of Proceedings 

Mrs. John S. Watters of Raleigh was elected Editor of the two 
pages of the Carolina Churchman that are now devoted to Religious 
Education. It is hoped in this way that our people will become 
informed of our diocesan activities in Religious Education and of 
the principles that govern this phase of our work. 

Miss Bessie Hensel has been Supervisor of the Church School 
Program, and real progress has been made in all five fields. 

Thirty-one church schools had part in the Christmas Box work, and 
Miss Pearsall of Rocky Mount has now undertaken this work. 

The Little Helpers' Department is taking on new life with Mrs. 
Baker of Wadesboro as Chairman, and many new branches have 
been formed. 

Mrs. Bennett Perry of Henderson is Secretary of the Birthday 
Thank Offering and forty-seven schools had a part in the $764 pre- 
sented at Denver for St. Luke's Hospital, Tokyo, Japan, for the last 
Triennium. Iolani School in Honolulu will be the objective this 
Triennium. 

Teacher Training has been the first objective of the Department, 
and Miss Rosalie Wilson has had charge of this work. One Day In- 
stitutes were held in Raleigh, Weldon, Greensboro and Cleveland 
with Miss Stout and others leading Conferences. Three hundred 
and one were present, including twenty-five clergymen. 

Miss Stout had a five-day Training Institute at St. Paul's, Winston- 
Salem, and Mrs. James W. Griffith had a five-day institute at St. 
Martin's, Charlotte. 

The Rev. Willis G. Clark of St. Peter's, Charlotte, is the Dean of 
a Diocesan faculty of fifteen men and women. 

We had eighty-four registered out of a total of two hundred and 
seven at the Kanuga Adult Leader Training Conference at the 
school of the Prophets. Three were at the Sewanee Summer School 
and one at Sweetbriar. 

The Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence has been chairman of our College 
Work Committee and reports all college students within the Diocese 
given some pastoral attention. The University of North Carolina 
has been given additional assistance by the Rev. Thos. H. Wright, 
part time assistant to Mr. Lawrence. Mrs. Frank N. Challen has 
again done excellent work with college girls at North Carolina 
College for Women. 

At Duke University, Durham; State College, Raleigh, and Salem 
College, Winston-Salem, the Parish Clergy have given much time 
and with the help of their congregations have done very satisfac- 
tory work. 

After Mr. Haines' departure in September, Mrs. Challen gave 
supervision to the Y. P. S. L. until January. A good Convention was 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 31 

held in Charlotte in September. Since January 1 the Executive 
Committee of the Y. P. S. L. have had supervision of their own work 
with the Rev. Daniel W. Allen as adviser. 

Department of Christian Social Service 

With no operating budget, other than that, for the Thompson 
Orphanage, the work of this department has necessarily been lim- 
ited. Something has been done, however, both in the nature of 
groundwork for future development, and in practical Christian 
social work of relief from present economic distress, without regard 
to race or religious denomination. 

From many sources, including the National Council and the 
Provincial Department of Social Service, this department has col- 
lected, arranged and studied a large amount of data on social 
service, with particular reference to the social responsibility of 
the Church. From this data it has prepared a pamphlet outlining: 
(1) possible social problems of any community; (2) many illus- 
trations of practical social work which may be done by the parish, 
the Woman's Auxiliary, a men's club, a St. Andrew's Brotherhood, 
the Y. P. S. L., the Sunday school, or other groups; and (3) an 
educational program in social service, including summaries of ser- 
mons and talks on the subject. This booklet is still being revised to 
some extent and will be available in mimeograph form during the 
summer. 

In the field of practical relief, Lieutenant Oxley in the fall of 
1931 organized Negro unemployment relief throughout the State, 
resulting in the first concerted effort on the part of the Negroes 
to meet their own relief needs. Students of Bishop Tuttle Train- 
ing School, under the supervision of Mrs. Louise Bromley, con- 
ducted successful campaigns for the institution of family gardening 
and canning in and around Raleigh. The department chairman 
has made about ten talks in and out of this diocese on the social 
responsibility of the Church. Each member of the department has 
been especially active in the social work of his own community. 

Special attention is called to the fact that, in conjunction with 
provincial authorities, the Department has available speakers on 
every phase of social work, who may be secured either at no ex- 
pense, or at most upon payment of travel and entertainment. It 
is hoped that many churches and church organizations will use 
such speakers. 

Edwin A. Penick, Chairman. 
Theodore Partrick, Jr., Secretary. 

A communication from the General Convention in regard 
to amendments to the Constitution was read by the Secretary,

The resolutions appended to the report were adopted. 

The report of St. Mary's School was read by Bishop Penick. 

Report of Trustees of St. Mary's School and Junior College 

In accordance with the provisions of the Act of Incorporation, 
the President of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College presents herewith the report of this Board for the 
year 1931. 

The enrollment of resident students for the academic year begin- 
ning last September shows a serious decline from the registration 
of previous years, the total number being 127. The State of North 
Carolina supplied 70 of this number, divided among the three dio- 
ceses as follows: East Carolina, 21; North Carolina, 40; Western 
North Carolina, 9. The geographical registration of the resident 
students is as follows: North Carolina, 70; Virginia, 20; South 
Carolina and Tennessee, 5 each; New York, 4; Florida and Georgia, 
3 each. Twelve other states, including Connecticut on the north 
and Texas on the west, are represented by one or two students. 
Thirty-two day and special students have been enrolled, making a 
total registration of 159 as compared with 226 in the previous 
session and 257 in 1929. 

The religious affiliation of the student body comprises 104 Epis- 
copal girls, 19 Presbyterians, 20 Methodists, 11 Baptists, 2 Roman 
Catholics, 1 Lutheran, 1 Unitarian, 1 Christian. 

The revenue account for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1931, 
copy of which is attached and made part of this report, is highly 
gratifying under conditions then existing, showing an operating 
profit for the session of $1,387.81. The officials of the school and 
the Finance Committee of the Executive Committee are entitled 
to high praise for the efficiency of their management of school 
affairs under extraordinary circumstances. Attention is called to 
the fact that this financial report does not apply to the current 
year. Since last fall, owing to the sharp decline in revenue from 
patrons the business of the school has been administered with 
extra cautiousness and, ability and wherever possible economies 
have been effected, but never to a point that might imperil the 
high standing of the school. The outstanding obligations against 
the school have all been taken care of this spring through a loan of 
$80,000 from the New York Mutual Life Insurance Company, for 
which a mortgage was given on all the property of the school. 
The budget for next year has been drawn with the assistance of the 
school auditor so as to provide for a curtailment of principal and 
the payment of interest charges and it is determined that these 
payments shall be made regularly as they fall due. 

The principal need of the school is for an increased enrollment, 
and to this end a special plan has been adopted and set in motion 



38 Journal of Proceedings 

under which the claims of St. Mary's School will be presented in 
every pulpit of the Diocese of North Carolina. It is confidently 
expected that when parents are informed about the high academic 
standards and cultural and spiritual advantages of St. Mary's School 
they will prefer to send their daughters to this institution. 

Since January 1, 1932, two of the most devoted Trustees of the 
school have passed to their reward, Mr. Wm. A. Erwin and Mr. 
J. Cheshire Webb. 

Record is here made with deep regret of the resignation of the 
Rev. Warren W. Way, D.D., Rector of the school, to become effective 
at the close of the present academic term. Under Dr. Way's admin- 
istration, covering the last fourteen years, the school has steadily 
improved in its physical equipment, academic standards and all 
other requirements of the Southern Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools. Dr. Way carries with him the affectionate 
esteem of the Board of Trustees, Executive Committee and the 
officers and teachers and student body. He will be succeeded by 
Mrs. Ernest Cruikshank, who comes to St. Mary's from the Columbia 
Institute, Columbia, Tenn. Her position will be that of Principal, 
combining some of the duties hitherto discharged by the Rector, 
the Dean of Students and the Academic Head. The Trustees feel 
that they have been fortunate in securing one of Mrs. Cruikshank's 
personal qualifications and professional training as the successor 
to Dr. Way. The Trustees bespeak for her and the school the 
loyal and vigorous cooperation of the clergy and laity of the Church. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin A. Pbnick, 
President Board of Trustees.

The report of the Woman's Auxiliary was read by the Eev. 
Thaddeus A. Cheatham. 

The Report of the Woman's Auxiliary 

As President of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of North 
Carolina, I beg to submit the following report: 

It is difficult to translate into words the great expenditure of 
strength, both mental and physical, that the past year's history 
unfolds, but the following summary may indicate something of 
the work accomplished: The Departments of Supply, Social Service 
and Religious Education show interest, efficiency and steady prog- 
ress. The United Thank Offering though affected by present finan- 
cial conditions still remains of utmost interest, with North Carolina 
again leading the Fourth Province. The report of the Treasurer 
proves that no temporary change in economic conditions can alter 
the zeal of the women of the Auxiliary. The various Committee 
Chairmen give encouraging reports of their specific work. Two 
volunteers have gone to the mission field: Miss Annie Gray Bur- 
roughs of Henderson to far distant Liberia and Miss Mary Baker 
Jenkins of Rocky Mount to Cuba. Others have entered General 
Church Work. The Committee on Promotion of Y. P. S. L. is 
endeavoring to secure more helpful contact between the two organ- 
izations; that committee's responsibilities now extend to "Work 
Among All Young People." That proper spiritual preparation is 
the foundation of all of our endeavors is emphasized in the observ- 
ance of Corporate Communions, Days of Intersessions, reading of 
religious books and Church papers, Daily Bible Readings, and the 
Lenten Season. In prayer, meditation and intercession shall we 
find strength for ourselves and others. 

Last year at the Convention in Wilson, two resolutions were 
passed: one to furnish a room at St. Luke's, Ponce, Porto Rico, in 



40 Journal of Proceedings 

memory of Catherine Bourne, a former Missionary, and the other 
the inauguration of Summer Volunteer Work. The former was 
completed early in the year and the necessary funds sent to Mr. 
Franklin. The other met with such remarkable success that plans 
were made to insure the permanency of it. 

As President, I have held two Executive Board meetings, at- 
tended two meetings of the Executive Council, nine District meet- 
ings, Regional Training School in preparation for the Teaching 
Mission, and several Parish meetings. At the Y. P. S. L. Confer- 
ence at Kanuga last summer, I instructed a class on "Work with 
the Auxiliary." With the four other delegates from this branch 
I attended the Triennial at Denver, accounts of which I have given 
frequently. A monthly letter to each branch has enabled me to 
call attention to the important issues of the time; also through 
the medium of the Carolina Churchman, I have tried to present 
matters pertaining to Auxiliary work and methods for developing 
that work. 

Amounts contributed in 1931 are as follows: 

Forward Movement $ 3,881.63 

Advance Work Program 1,579.35 

Social Service 1,186.33 

Religious Education 1,600.93 

Specials 3,245.50 

Box Work 5,051.58 

U. T. 5,174.58 

Total $21,719.90 

This does not include a large amount spent locally for Social 
Service not reported through the Diocesan Treasurer. 

The Auxiliary realizes that if she is to be worthy of the future, 
if she is to help in the building of a Christian Nation for tomorrow, 
she much share in the essential things needed in the Church today. 
Therefore she has adopted the following objectives for the coming 
year: (1) Development of the devotional life of each individual; 
(2) definite and constructive education; (3) personal responsibility 
for the Church's Program; (4) enlistment of younger women. 

As the term of Miss Rena Clark on the Executive Council expires 
this month, the Auxiliary respectfully submits for your considera- 
tion the name of Mrs. Alex. Cooper of Henderson to fill this vacancy. 

The year 1932 is an eventful one in the history of this organiza- 
tion as it marks the fiftieth anniversary of its founding. At the 
Diocesan Convention in Tarboro, 1882, at the request of Bishop 
Lyman, the existing branches of the Auxiliary, six in number, were 
formed into a Diocesan branch under the leadership of Mrs. John 
Wilkes of Charlotte. Noteworthy and appropriate exercises com- 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 41 

memorating this event were held at the annual meeting in Hender- 
son, April 5-7. In gratitude for an Auxiliary that has grown from 
strength to strength in the past fifty years, an offering, including 
additional gifts, amounting to $1,500, was given in honor of Bishop 
Cheshire. It is to be used for the completion of the Cheshire 
Building Fund at St. Augustine's College, Raleigh. 

In closing, let me emphasize the grave concern with which the 
Auxiliary views the present emergency in the Church, particularly 
in regard to the curtailment of Missionary work. She, therefore, 
offers her full support in whatever methods may be devised to pro- 
vide for the carrying on of the work of the Church. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rena H. Clark. 

On motion of the Rev. William J. Gordon, the report was 
received by the Convention by a rising vote in token of grati- 
tude, and the report was referred to a special committee with 
instructions to prepare a resolution of appreciation for the work 
of the Auxiliary. The Chairman appointed on this committee 
the Rev. Thaddeus A. Cheatham, the Rev. Wm. J. Gordon, 
and Mr. Benjamin E. Phillips. 

The Rev. John L. Jackson presented the report of the Thomp- 
son Orphanage. 

Report of the Board of Managers of the Thompson Orphanage 
and Training Institution 

We are very grateful that during the past year our institution 
has been able to accomplish even greater service for little children; 
we have had no serious sickness; the children have progressed 
very well in the City Public School, and the kindergarten has con- 
tinued to do excellent work under Miss Nail's care. All the older 
children attended St. Peter's Church School. We were able to 
close the year 1931, living within our budget and without a deficit. 

We cared for 120 children during the year and now have 
109 — 25 full orphans, 76 half-orphans and 8 with both parents living; 
69 from the Diocese of North Carolina, 25 from the Diocese of 
East Carolina, and 15 from the Diocese of Western North Carolina. 

During the year there were four Baptisms and five Confirmations. 

We acknowledge the wonderful loyalty of our much beloved 
Superintendent, Mr. Wheeler, and his able staff of assistants, and 
we express our appreciation of their cooperation in reducing the 
1932 budget by cheerfully accepting a ten per cent salary cut. Mr. 
Bynum has proved a most able assistant in the office and under his 
direction the farm in the past year has more than paid expenses. 



42 Journal of Proceedings 

We are glad to report that Mrs. Janet Mays has been added to our 
staff of workers and in addition to her duties at the laundry she 
has had charge of special study hall for older children and is co- 
operating with the city schools in helping our boys and girls in 
their educational advancement. 

Miss Claudia} Hunter and Dr. Harry W. Crane made last fall 
a thorough investigation into the mental possibilities of the children 
with the aim to fit them more intelligently for a vocation in life. 

We wish to acknowledge the gift of $1,000 from Mr. J. Porter 
Stedman in memory of his father and mother; a $10,000 legacy 
from Mrs. Frances Frercks of Salisbury to be known as the Peter 
A. Frercks and Family Memorial Fund; and $100 from Miss Lizzie 
E. Mallett of Fayetteville. 

The Orphanage now has an estimated income from all sources of 
$27,866 and we have reduced our budget to that amount and our 
cost per child is now $255. We urge the Diocese of North Carolina 
to pay the Orphanage more regularly the Orphanage's share of the 
Forward Movement receipts.

The Eev. Edgar H. Goold presented the report of St. Augus- 
tine's College, St. Agnes' Hospital, and the Bishop Tuttle 
Memorial School. 

Report of St. Augustine's College, Including St. Agnes' Hospital 
and the Bishop Tuttle Memorial School 

During the past year, the Sixty-fifth Annual Session, there have 
been enrolled 358 students, including 42 pupil nurses at the St. 
Agnes' Hospital Training School and 15 students in the Bishop 
Tuttle School for Religious and Welfare Workers. This is a slight 
increase over the total enrollment of last year due to the in- 
crease in the number of College students, 179 of whom enrolled 
in that department. Eighteen states and two foreign countries 
are represented in the student body. 

Plans have been matured for the removal of the Bishop Payne 
Divinity School from Petersburg, Virginia, to Raleigh, where it 
will be located in close proximity to St. Augustine's and be affili- 
ated with it. Bishop Cheshire is the President of the new Board 
of Trustees of the Bishop Payne School. 

During the Epiphany Season a very helpful Teaching Mission 
was held under the leadership of the Rev. Cyril E. Bentley, who has 
recently become Associate Director of the American Church Insti- 
tute for Negroes. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 43 

We are endeavoring to raise our full quota of $900 for the 
Forward Movement and are encouraged by the fact that the Lenten 
Offering for Missions was practically no less than that of a year ago. 

We are grateful to the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese for 
making a Jubilee Offering of $1,500 toward the Cheshire Building 
Fund, thus enabling us to remove all obligations connected with 
the erection of this building in honor of Bishop Cheshire. 

The usual St. Augustine's Conference for Clergy and Church 
Workers, including a Young People's Conference, will be held 
shortly after the close of the college year. The greatest need of 
the institution is for an adequate endowment. 

St. Agnes' Hospital, with its Training School for Nurses, has 
had increasing demands on it for charity work and has been a 
source of untold comfort and blessing to hundreds of needy patients. 
The help given by the Duke Endowment toward the expense of 
charity cases has been a decisive factor in enabling the work to 
go on. During the year there have been over 800 bed patients, 
and about 21,000 hospital days; 410 operations have been performed. 
Over 800 out patients have been treated in the clinic. The patients 
have themselves paid only about $9,000, a considerable falling off 
from previous years. According to the statistics of the Duke 
Endowment, St. Agnes' has the lowest per capita cost of any hos- 
pital in the Carolinas. 

The Bishop Tuttle School for Church and Welfare Workers, main- 
tained by the National Woman's Auxiliary, has had a busy year. A 
great deal of practical work has been made possible in connection 
with the Community House in the neighborhood, a gift of Mrs. 
A. B. Hunter. Two of the graduates of last year are working in 
South Carolina and one in Arkansas. Another is serving as a 
Field Secretary of the National Woman's Auxiliary, helping to 
establish and develop its work in Colored Missions and Parishes. 
One of the present graduating class has already been placed in 
Georgia, and another in South Carolina. It is to be hoped that 
North Carolina will soon make more use of the services of these 
excellently trained young women. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edgar H. Goold, President. 

The report of St. Peter's Hospital, Charlotte, was read by 
Mr. Frederick Jackson. 

Report of St. Peter's Hospital 

The Board of Managers of St. Peter's Hospital are submitting 
to you the following report covering the fiscal year from January 1, 
1931, to January, 1932. 



44 Journal of Proceedings 

The hospital has admitted for treatment 1,886 patients for 14,061 
days. Of this number 309 were charity patients who were treated 
for a period of 3,724 days and 129 were admitted as semi-charity 
patients for 1,633 days, of which 533 were free days, making a 
total of 4,257 free days. 

The patients admitted under the classification of semi-charity 
pay for hospital services what they are able to pay, and as a rule 
payments are very small. 

Two hundred fifty-nine babies were born, and only one mother 
was lost. 

The institution is in a very satisfactory condition. During the 
year sprinkler equipment was installed in the old part of the hospi- 
tal, giving us now a minimum fire risk, and lower cost of insurance, 
also other improvements and replacements, making a total cost 
of more than $3,000, for which we paid cash. All current bills are 
paid to May 1, and we now have available assets as follows: 

Dividend bearing stock Mutual B. & L. Association $ 2,300.00 

300 Running Shares Stock Mutual B. & L. Association 15,375.00 

First Mortgage Real Estate Loan 5,000.00 

Bank balance (for operating expenses) 4,207.10 



$26,882.10 
Respectfully submitted, 

M. M. Murphy, President. 

On motion of the Eev. A. Burtis Hunter, D.D., it was resolved 
that the Convention express its thanks to the Duke Endowment 
Fund, through Dr. Kankin, for the aid given by that Fund to 
the Hospitals of the Diocese and to the Orphanage. 

The report of the Good Samaritan Hospital, Charlotte, was 
read by Mr. John W. Fox. 

Report of Good Samaritan Hospital 

Once again it is a privilege to submit the report of the Good 
Samaritan Hospital. The year 1931 has brought us many oppor- 
tunities and many responsibilities. Never in the history of the 
hospital has the need been greater or the calls more urgent. We 
rejoice that our enlarged hospital and improved equipment have 
enabled us to meet the increased needs. We wish to gratefully 
acknowledge the gifts from our Church, from our friends and from 
the Duke Endowment. We feel that much of the success of the 
work of the hospital and the excellence of our School of Nursing 
is due to unselfish service rendered by our Superintendent, Miss 
Marion Bodey.

SECOND DAY 



Wednesday, May 11, 1932 

The Holy Communion was celebrated at 7:30 a.m. in St. 
Philip's Church, Bishop Penick being the Celebrant, assisted 
by the Rev. Sidney S. Bost. 

At 9 :30 a.m. Morning Prayer was said in St. Philip's Church

At 10 :15 a.m. the Convention was called to order by Bishop 
Penick. 

The Secretary read the minutes of the first day's proceed-

The Rev. F. Craighill Brown read the report of the Trustees 
of the University of the South, as follows : 

Report of Trustees of the University of the South 

I give you below my report as Trustee of the University of the 
South for transmittal to the Convention of the Diocese of North 
Carolina: 

It was my privilege to attend the meeting of the Board of Trustees 
held at Sewanee in June, 1931, at which meeting the Diocese was 
represented by Bishop Cheshire, Bishop Penick and myself. I 
expect to attend the meeting to be held June 9-14, 1932, and I hope 
that all members of the Board of Trustees from this Diocese can 
be present at that time. 

At the present time, the enrollment of the University is 259, 
of which number approximately 20 are in the Theological School. 
The enrollment of the college is limited to approximately 300 
students, so that it is now operating considerably below capacity. 
The University is asking church people everywhere to assist by 
sending them students to bring the enrollment up to capacity. 

The income of the University this year has been reduced approxi- 
mately $23,000 less than at this time last year, the shrinkage being 
due largely to decreased enrollment, larger number of scholarships, 
and the passing of dividends on the part of investments. The 
operating expenses of the University have been reduced to balance 
with the reduced income, the saving having been accomplished 
largely through the reduction of salaries of all faculty members 
and employees effective February 1. Dr. Finney reports that except 
for financial difficulties, the University is in a very healthy con- 



48 Journal of Proceedings 

dition, and that the quality of work done by the students is 
unusually good. 

Of unusual interest to friends of the University is the announce- 
ment of the appointment of Major General William R. Smith, 
U. S. A., as superintendent of the Military Academy, effective for 
the year 1932-1933. In addition to his varied services in the army, 
which have taken him to all parts of the world, Major Smith has 
served several terms as professor at the Military Academy at West 
Point, and is now completing a four-year term as superintendent 
of the Academy. 

In addition to attending the meeting of the Board of Trustees, 
I have talked Sewanee continually for the past year, and have 
sent catalogues and other data to numerous persons. I have re- 
cently written all alumni of the Diocese asking that each make 
some small contribution to the University, and I hope that my 
efforts will meet with some success. It is a privilege to be a 
member of this Board of Trustees, and I earnestly urge all members 
of the Church to give the institution their full support by con- 
tributions, no matter how small, and principally by helping to 
send students to the Military Academy and to the University. 

Godfrey Cheshire. 

The Rev. Francis H. Craighill read the report of the Com- 
mittee on the State of the Church, as follows : 

Report of Committee on the State of the Church 

At the last two sessions of the Convention a continuing com- 
mittee on the State of the Church has presented a wonderfully 
complete and informing study of all phases of our Diocesan work, 
covering a ten-year period, and comparing statistics of year-groups. 
The information thus placed at the disposal of the Convention is 
still available in the Journals of the Convention for 1930 and 1931. 
Abnormal conditions during the past year have reduced the value 
of current statistics for purposes of comparison, but they have a 
significance of their own as showing on how nearly an even keel 
the Church has ridden out the storm. 

During this great depression, when so many strong secular insti- 
tutions have experienced disaster, the Church has suffered, but has 
steadily done her work with far less of loss or change than has 
been apparent in other lines. 

Vital Statistics 

Consider the following figures from the current reports for 1931 
as compared with 1930. No report has been received from one 
good parish, vacant throughout the year, and from a number of 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 49 

colored Churches. When these figures can be secured and written 
in, the comparative showing will be even better. 

Baptisms: 1931, 494; 1930, 554. A loss of sixty, which will be 
partly recovered by the missing reports, but is also due to the 
fact that there has been a steady decrease in Baptisms throughout 
the whole Church for a number of years past. The two chief 
reasons are probably the decreasing birthrate, somewhat accented 
by the depression, and the fact that a larger proportion of adult 
accessions to the Church have already been baptized. 

Confirmations: 1931, 595; 1930, 540. A gain of fifty-five, a little 
over 10 per cent. A gratifying increase in this most important item. 

Marriages: in 1931, 85; in 1930, 117. A loss of thirty-two, which 
is 28 per cent. Partly a reflection of economic conditions, and 
partly due to our stricter civil marriage laws, which are causing 
many people to be married in neighboring states. 

Burials: 267 in 1931; 291 in 1930. One figure in the report 
which we rejoice to see smaller. 

Communicants: in current reports, 10,639; in 1930, 10,539. A 
gain of exactly 100; only 1 per cent, but it is a triumph to be 
holding our own in such times as these, especially as in the current 
unrest most parishes have suffered greatly from removal of com- 
municants, many of whom have not affiliated with the Church in 
their new places of residence. There is need here of greater 
vigilance. 

The Church School enrollment for 1931 is 9,199, and in 1930 it 
was 9,142. The missing reports would make this slight gain larger, 
but with smaller families and harder times, even a slight gain 
indicates careful work and better organization. 

Finances 

The total financial receipts of the churches show an inevitable 
decrease from $379,000 to $317,000, a loss of $62,000, 16 per cent, 

Almost any secular business would be glad to show so slight a 
decrease in cash receipts. 

Expenditures for current parochial expenses show a decrease of 
110,000, from $185,000 to $175,000, 5y 2 per cent, but contributions 
to the Forward Movement decreased $12,000, from $63,000 to $51,000, 
19 per cent. Strict constructionists will reprehend this as a lapse 
into parochialism, but those in touch with the life of the Church 
know how greatly the parishes and their individual members have 
suffered, and how generous and loyal have been the efforts, in most 
instances, to maintain the level of contributions. 

But an inspection of the figures shows that more than $8,000 
of the deficit of $12,000 was due to the failure of six prominent 
parishes to pledge the full amount of their apportionment, or to 
pay any adequate proportion of their pledges. A resolution dealing 
with this situation is appended to this report.

Work Maintained 

In spite of the decrease in its resources, the work of the Church 
in the Diocese has been carried on. Not a Church has been closed, 
our staff of Missionary workers has been maintained at approxi- 
mately full strength, and by careful study and self-sacrificing effort, 
means have been found to care for all necessary features of the 
Church's work. 

The Emergency Fund 

No survey of the State of the Church would be complete without 
mention of the emergency in our general missionary work. The 
Convention is sufficiently informed from other sources of the call 
for a special offering of $400,000. May your committee express 
the confident hope that a Diocese so safe and so well provided in 
its own home field will do its utmost for the workers in the far 
flung outposts of the Church's line. 

Negro Work 

Your committee finds the Negro work of the Diocese in unsatis- 
factory condition. The number of Negro Communicants is much 
smaller now than twenty years ago, and the whole work is receding 
rather than advancing. A special committee has studied this 
work and will present a report which is earnestly commended to 
the attention of the Convention. 

Vade Mecum 

A notable addition to our Diocesan equipment is the Vade Mecum 
property which we will begin to use this summer for conferences 
and camps. A wide area of land and an excellent group of build- 
ings with $16,000 worth of recent improvements has been placed 
at our disposal at no expense to the Diocese, and with the intima- 
tion that the terms of possession may be made permanent if our 
Church shows that it can make adequate use of the property. 

Institutions 

Your Committee has inquired into the condition of our Diocesan 
institutions and the institutions of the General Church situated 
within our borders, and finds all of them strong, active and useful. 
All have suffered some embarrassment from reduced or inadequate 
income, but all have been able to carry on their work without 
material reduction and to look forward with entire confidence to 
continued life and usefulness. Most of these institutions have al- 
ready presented to the Convention detailed statements of their 
condition and work. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 51 



The Executive Council 

Your Committee feels that the Diocese is to be congratulated 
upon the efficiency with which the Executive Council has taken 
up its increased burden of responsibility. Since the loss of our 
Executive Secretary, many items of his work have fallen upon the 
members of the Council, and several clerical members and several 
lay members have given without stint of their time and interest; 
and their work, as this Convention has had opportunity to observe, 
has been well done. 

Conclusion 

The Church has passed through a difficult and dangerous year, 
but has come this far with its organization intact and its doors 
of opportunity still open. What has been done has been done on 
a greatly reduced income — and we have found a way to do it. It 
is improbable that there will be any increase in the near future, 
and further reductions are not unlikely. It is in some respects 
a return to the conditions that existed before the Nation Wide 
Campaign of 1919. Money is an extremely useful adjunct to Church 
work; but, after all, life and labor, faith and love are the things 
that really count, and those we still have in undiminished supply; 
and, as this year, so always, the sacrificial spirit will find a way 
to do the Master's work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Francis H. Craig hill,

Resolution 

Your Committee offers the following Resolution and moves its 
adoption: 

Resolved, That in preparing for the Every-Member Canvass of 
1932, the Field Department of the Executive Council be requested 
to take special note of those parishes whose contributions to the 
Program of the Church seem incommensurate to their strength, 
and make special provision for helping them to make a successful 
canvass. 

The resolution offered by the Committee was adopted. 
On motion of the Rev. Jean A. Vache, the consideration of 
the Yade Mecum camps was made the special order for 11 a.m. 



52 Journal of Proceedings 

The report of the work at the University of North Carolina 
was read by the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence, as follows : 

Report of the Work at the University of North Carolina 

There is nothing sensational to report about the work at the 
University, but we are doing our best through the Church to make 
the Person of Christ a vital factor in the life of the students. 

The most noteworthy event of the year is the coming of the 
Rev. Thomas H. Wright last September, to assist in the work among 
the students. Mr. Wright gives half of his time to Chapel Hill, 
and the other half to his work as Provincial Secretary for College 
work. Mr. Wright is entirely supported by the National Commis- 
sion, and we are very grateful to that Commission for making it 
possible for Mr. Wright to be at Chapel Hill. 

When college opened last September, there was a considerable 
increase in the number of students who are members of, or who 
prefer, the Episcopal Church. There were 415. In last Summer 
School there were 140, a total of 555 for the year. Though some 
have dropped out since Christmas, several others have come in. 
About 150 of these students are from states other than North 
Carolina. 

We have followed the same methods as in previous years; a re- 
ception for Freshmen, visits to rooms, fraternities and to the in- 
firmary, occasional letters, group meetings, and Sunday afternoon 
teas through the fall and winter quarters. 

This year we have no student Bible class. In place of it we 
have a student forum, meeting every Sunday night at 7 p.m., with 
open discussion on religious questions. Mr. Wright has had charge 
of this, and it has been well attended by a group of interested 
students. 

Sunday nights at 8 p.m. we have a short service of prayer and 
organ music. This service has proved quite popular. During Lent, 
there was a fair attendance of students at the daily services. 

Sixty-eight of the students are women. Many of these work on 
the altar guild, and meet with Mrs. Lawrence for supper at the 
rectory about six times during the year. 

In this college year, we have had visits from the Rev. I. W. 
Hughes, Miss Hope Baskette, Bishop Remington, Bishop Darst, 
Bishop Penick, and the Rev. A. C. Zabriskie with three students 
from the Virginia Seminary. 

Our financial condition is not very encouraging. Salary cuts at 
the University have necessarily reduced local support. This Dio- 
cese had to cut its appropriation 10 per cent, and East Carolina 
had to cut 33 1-3 per cent. The proceeds of the Erwin Endowment 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 53 

Fund have dropped nearly 50 per cent. Our student entertainment 
fund is only $100, so such entertainment has been badly curtailed. 

When a report from the work at the University was first required, 
there was no other college work in the Diocese. It seems now 
that all the college work should be included in this report. 

A full account of the work of Mrs. F. N. Challen at N. C. C. W. 
was given in the March number of the Carolina Churchman. There 
are about 120 Church girls at the college, and through St. Mary's 
House and personal visiting, Mrs. Challen has been able to keep 
in close touch with most of them. A number of special preachers 
have come to St. Mary's House, and the services have been well 
attended. The girls have taken an active part in many fields of 
service. The Rev. J. Vache is now chaplain of St. Mary's House, 
and is taking a great interest in the work. 

It is with great regret that we learn that Mrs. Challen has re- 
signed her position as worker at N. C. C. W., to take effect with 
the close of this term. Her work has been of inestimable value, 
and it will be extremely difficult to fill her place. 

Mention must also be made of the work of the Rev. S. S. Bost 
and of the women of St. Philip's Parish for what they are doing for 
the students at Duke. Through teas and socials many contacts have 
been made with our Church students there, and in spite of the 
distance between the college and the church, many students have 
been attending the services. The organization of a College Stu- 
dents' Auxiliary has been found very helpful.

The Eev. Eoma C. Fortune made his report of the Mission 
to the Deaf, the Rev. Sidney S. Bost interpreting it to the 
Convention. The report is as follows : 

Report of the Mission to the Deaf 

During the year I have delivered 115 sermons and addresses. 
I baptized one adult in St. Andrew's Church, Greensboro; officiated 
at one funeral; presented three candidates for confirmation in St. 
Andrew's, Greensboro. 

My ministrations have been to 1,148 persons at the various mis- 
sion points in the Diocese. 
Loose offerings at my various services in the Diocese have 

been $98.48 

Expenses have been 96.50

In a year when many diocesan papers had to discontinue pub- 
lication for financial reasons, the Carolina Churchman was able 
to carry on. This was due to the generosity of friends and a wide 
distribution of support that fell heavily on no one. 

The year 1932 will make heavier demands, as receipts to date are 
running far behind other years. The management of the paper

receipts for subscriptions will tide the Carolina Churchman over 
its most difficult year.

The hour of eleven having been reached, the special order 
was called for. The Eev. Jean A. Vache then addressed the 
Convention, explaining the plans for the camp, and informing 
the Convention of the work that has been done by the Winston- 
Salem Foundation in putting the property in order. He 
stated that the immediate needs for equipment called for about 
$700 more than had so far been received. On motion of the 
Rev. Sidney S, Bost, Mr. Vache was authorized to call on the 
members of the Convention then assembled for subscriptions to 
meet this need. The sum of $416 was pledged.

The Rev. Robert B. Owens read the report of the Committee 
on Canons, as follows: 

Report of the Committee on Canons 

The Committee on Canons respectfully report as follows: 

We have considered the proposed changes in the Constitution, 
referred to this Convention by the General Convention of 1931. 

These proposed changes are as follows: 

1. Amend Article I, Section 3, of the Constitution by inserting 
the words "the close of" after the word "until" so that the sen- 
tence shall read: "The Bishop so elected shall serve until the close 
of the next General Convention." 

2. Amend Article II, Section 6, of the Constitution to read as 
follows: "A Bishop may not resign his episcopal charge without 
the consent either of the House of Bishops of the Church or of the 
House of Bishops of the Province in which his office has been 
exercised, in either case under conditions prescribed by the Canons 
of the next General Convention." 

3. Amend Article II, Section 3, of the Constitution by adding 
the words, "A Bishop or Bishop Coadjutor shall be eligible as 
Bishop or Bishop Coadjutor of another Diocese, or he may be elected 
by the House of Bishops as a Missionary Bishop." 

4. Amend Article II, Section 6, of the Constitution by adding 
to the present Article the following: "Provided that this Article 
shall not apply to a Bishop resigning to accept other Episcopal 
election." 

"We recommend that this Convention approve the proposals 1 
and 2. 
We recommend that this Convention disapprove proposals 3 and 4. 
We offer the following resolutions: 

1. That Canon XVII, Section 2, be amended by changing the 
word "annually" in lines 5 and 8 to the word "triennially," and 
also by changing the words "one year" in lines 8 and 9 to "three 
years." 

2. Resolved, That this Convention hereby instructs the Executive 
Council to take appropriate steps to secure compliance with the 
provisions of Canon XIII, Section 3. 

Robert B. Owens, Chairman. 

The resolutions attached to the report and the report as a 
whole, were adopted. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 61 

On motion of the Rev. Wilmot S. Holmes, the secretary was 
instructed to send a letter of greeting and sympathy to the 
Rev. Mark H. Milne. (The letter was duly sent.) 

The Rev. Milton A. Barber, S.T.D., introduced the following 
resolution : 

Whereas, The Diocese uses one basis in making assessments 
against parishes and missions for the Episcopal and Contingent 
Fund, and the Executive Council of the Diocese uses a different 
basis in making apportionments for the Forward Movement Fund, 
therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Executive Council be, and that it hereby is, 
instructed by this Convention to use the same basis in making ap- 
portionments for the Forward Movement Fund as is used in making 
assessments for the Episcopal and Contingent Fund. 

On motion of the Rev. John Long Jackson, this resolution 
was referred to the Executive Council. 

The Secretary read the report of the special committee to 
which had been referred the report of the Trustees of the Dio- 
cese, as follows : 

Report of Special Committee 

The special committee appointed to consider the report of the 
Trustees of the Diocese reports that it has carefully considered 
the report, finds it correct and recommends the adoption of the same. 

The action of the Trustees in approving the proposal of the Vestry 
of the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, to reduce the insurance 
on the Church and the Parish House, with their contents, to the 
sum of $100,000 is in line with the best business thought of the 
day, as the property insured can be replaced for that sum at 
present prices.

The Rev. Thaddeus A. Cheatham read the following , report : 

Report of the Committee; to Whom Was Referred the Report 
of the President of the Woman's Auxiliary 

Your committee considers that the report of the President of the 
Woman's Auxiliary sounded a note that is heartening and inspiring. 
In a time of depressed enthusiasm, when limitation and curtail- 
ment seem generally to be the order, this report of achievement, faith, 
and undaunted optimism comes as a challenge to the other activities 
of the Church in North Carolina, We offer the following resolution: 

Resolved, That this Convention offer its congratulations to the 
Auxiliary upon the completion of fifty years of service and place 
on record its enthusiastic appreciation of the faithful work and 
indomitable spirit of the Auxiliary in this Diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Thaddeus A. Cheatham,

The resolution was adopted. 

The Rev. Theodore Partrick, Jr., presented the following 
report : 

Report of Committee on Negro Work 

The special committee on the Negro Work in the Diocese ap- 
pointed by Bishop Edwin A. Penick, under authority of a resolution 
adopted by the Diocesan Executive Council, met at the call of the 
Chairman, Rev. T. Partrick, Tuesday morning, April 26, 1932, at 
11:20 o'clock, in the Rectory of the Church of the Good Shepherd, 
Raleigh. 

The following members of the committee were present: Rev. 
T. Partrick, Rev. F. H. Craighill, Dean Charles H. Boyer and 
Lawrence A. Oxley. On the special invitation of Rev. T. Part- 
rick, the Rev. G. A. Fisher of "St. Ambrose's Church, Raleigh, at- 
tended this meeting. 

Following a thorough study and discussion of the Negro work 
in the Diocese of North Carolina, and inquiry into the values of the 
Negro Convocation, the committee unanimously recommended the 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 63 

following resolutions to be submitted to the Diocesan Annual Con- 
vention to toe held in Durham in May. 

Whereas, there is a great need for closer cooperation, coordination 
and supervision of the Negro work in the Diocese; and 

Whereas, in the opinion of the committee the Negro Convocation 
has outlived its usefulness; 

Be it resolved, That there be Negro representation, either as mem- 
bers or associate members, on the following named departments of 
the Diocesan organization: Field and Publicity, Finance, Christian 
Social Service, Christian Education, Missions and Church Extension. 

And he it further resolved, 

That there be created a standing committee in the Diocese on 
colored work, consisting of the Bishop, the Negro member of the 
Diocesan Executive Council, one Negro representative from each 
of the five Diocesan departments, and three members at large, 
appointed by the Bishop, one of whom shall be a woman to repre- 
sent the Woman's Auxiliary.

1932, this Convention offers its sincerest congratulations to Dr. 
Barber, and hopes he will have many more years of active leader- 
ship in this historic parish. 

The Rev. Robert E. Gribbin called the attention of the Con- 
vention to the fact that 1932 marks the tenth anniversary 
of the consecration of Bishop Penick, and the Convention stood 
not only to congratulate Bishop Penick, but also Bishop Cheshire 
who has now been Bishop of this Diocese nearly thirty-nine 
years. 

Bishop Penick then presented to the Convention the clergy 
who have come into the Diocese since the last Convention : 

The Rev. Frank D. Dean, M.D., the Rev. Thomas H. Wright, the 
Rev. Jean A. Vache, the Rev. Robert E. Roe, the Rev. Andrew D. 
Milstead, the Rev. Willis G. Clark. 

Mr. C. U. Harris invited the Convention to hold its next 
annual meeting at Christ Church, Raleigh. The invitation was 
accepted by the Convention with thanks and appreciation. 

Mr. J. R. Donnell requested the members of the Convention 
to present the matter of the Yade Mecum camps to their parish 
organizations, in order to secure more money for equipment. 

The minutes of the second day's proceedings were read and 
approved.

APPENDIX A 



ADDRESSES OF THE BISHOPS 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

I welcome you to the one hundred sixteenth Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese of North Carolina. I have myself 
attended, with two exceptions, every convention of the Diocese, 
beginning with that of 1874. My attendance, therefore, cover- 
ing 58 years, has been for just about one-half of the life of 
the Diocese, which, beginning in 1817, completes this year its 
one hundred and fifteen years. 

I am the only member of the Convention of 1874 who is 
present in this Convention today; and, so far as I can ascertain, 
there are only two other members of our Convention of 1874 
who are now living. Our brother, the Rev. Edmund N. 
Joyner, now residing in Hickory, in the Diocese of Western 
North Carolina, and Mr. Yardry McBee, a lay-delegate in 
1874, now residing in the same Diocese. 

The question of personal identity is a very perplexing one, 
how each of us continues the same person through physical 
changes, which, great as they are, are hardly so great as the 
inward changes in us from infancy to manhood and to old 
age. Yet we feel and know ourselves to be the same, by the 
continuity of our memory and consciousness. And how can 
we call this the same Diocese and the same Convention, when 
so very inconsiderable an element remains the same in 1874 
and in 1932? "We have from year to year a feeling that we 
are the same in faith, in love, in the animating sense of 
a continuous common hope and purpose, a common and un- 
ceasing effort to carry on the work handed down to us; and 
the indwelling Spirit knits us into a heavenly fellowship with 
the Body of Christ, so that we feel our union and identity 
with all the faithful who are gone before — but whose life and 
work persists through all human and earthly mutations, and 
makes us one with them now and forever. This is still the Church 
and the Diocese of North Carolina, as it was fifty-eight years 
ago, but is now fifty-eight years older. 

We have suffered no diminution by death in the number of 
our clergy since we met a year ago. But we miss the earthly 



70 Addresses of the Bishops 

presence of some of our noblest and best laymen, who bad been 
associated with us in these annual meetings. I think no one 
will differ with me when I name, as the most eminent of these 
in life-long devotion to the Church, and the unfailing generous 
giving, first of himself, and then of his wordly substance, to 
the life and work of the Church, the late William Allen Erwin r 
of St. Philip's Church, Durham; and, I will add, of St. 
Stephen's Church, Erwin, of St. Joseph's Church, "West Dur- 
ham, and of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Cooleemee, 
for his unceasing personal interest, and generous cooperation, 
were only less given to these than to his immediate parish of 
St. Philip's, Durham. We have had very few laymen in the 
history of the Diocese who have given as much personal labor 
and service in parish and in missionary work as he gave more 
or less during the whole course of his life. We have had only 
one, so far as I know, who has given more generously and largely 
of his material possessions. We have had only one who gave 
greater personal work and service. I believe we have had no one, 
so far in the history of the Diocese, who in the combination 
of continuous and enthusiastic personal service and generous 
giving has equalled him. I think it is only right that I should 
say this, for it is true. 

At this time I remind you especially of his invaluable work 
in acquiring St. Mary's School for the Church. I am the only 
survivor of the original incorporators of the school, and of 
the men actively engaged in its management and development 
during the first critical years of its corporate life. There were 
able and devoted men associated in that work. I say without 
hesitation that no man did so much in the delicate and difficult 
work of securing the school for the Church, and for its estab- 
lishment as a permanent institution of the Church, as Mr. 
Erwin. And in its subsequent development, improvement and 
expansion, no other one person gave more generously in financial 
support, as well as in devoted personal service, during the 
greater part of this period of its growth and enlargement. 

We have had other noble and holy lives who have passed 
on to their rest and reward since our last annual meeting. I 
cannot name them all, and I know not how to discriminate. I 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 71 

have felt that I should make special mention of this one, who 
was for so long and so usefully associated with almost every 
phase of our diocesan life. 

I have myself been a good deal hindered in things which I 
have desired to do, by the weakness and the uncertainty of 
health incident to old age. I cannot be very confident of keep- 
ing my appointments when I have made them; and I must 
confide in the kind consideration of my brethren to forgive me 
when I disappoint them. In spite, however, of some failures 
of this character, I believe I made at least one visitation 
in fulfillment of a regular appointment, to every parish and 
mission in that section of the Diocese which I have retained 
under my personal pastoral care; and in some cases I made 
more than one visitation during the year. I believe I have 
not failed to respond to any special call which has been made 
on me for pastoral services. I am very thankful that I 
am able to be of some use, and I trust that as long as I live 
I may be able to feel that I am of some service to Bishop 
Penick and the people of the Diocese.

May 17, the Sunday after Ascension Day, in Durham, within

Executive Secretary, read the Sentence of Consecration. The 
sermon was preached by the Rev. James M. Koehler, of the 
Diocese of Pennsylvania, the oldest Deaf-mute Priest in the 
American Church. It was in the sign language, but was in- 
terpreted for the hearing members of the congregation by Mr. 
Joseph Alexander Tillinghast, of Converse College, South Caro- 
lina, whose sister the late Miss Robina Tillinghast, during her 
years of residence in Durham, was so devoted in her work among 
the deaf, and to whom the Rev. Mr. Bost generously and justly 
attributed much of our interesting work among the Deaf in 
this community and in other parts of the Diocese. I was also 
assisted in the services by the Rev. Roma C. Fortune, Priest 
in charge of the Church, by the Rev. Geo. W. Lay, D. C. L.,

ing in Edgecombe County, about four miles west of T arbor ough,

Mary Penelope Gray, as a memorial to their mother. The petition 
for consecration was read by the Rev. Bertram E. Brown, who

Many of the changes and readjustments noted above have 
been caused by the necessity of reducing the expenses of our 
Missionary work. We have lost a number of our ablest and most 
effective Clergymen, but the vacancies thus created have in al- 
most all cases been adequately supplied. Only one 
of our more important parishes remains without a rector. 



84 Addresses of the Bishops 

The other parishes have been supplied by men not 
less able and effective. The greatest loss we have sus- 
tained has been the loss of our very faithful and efficient 
Executive Secretary, the Rev. Elwood L. Haines. I say that 
his departure was our greatest loss, because we are not able 
even to attempt to supply his place. He had won the respect 
and affection of us all. And we all have felt deeply for him 
in the sad experience he has been since called upon to endure. 

"We cannot feel that our work has not in some degree suf- 
fered by the necessity of curtailing our appropriations. But 
the judicious readjustments and combinations effected by 
Bishop Penick have provided that few Missions are left un- 
cared for, and the work of the Diocese is, on the whole, well 
attended to. 

I do not feel it necessary to speak to you of the general situa- 
tion and needs of the Diocese. The general administration of 
its affairs being in the capable hands of Bishop Penick, I 
am sure you will hear from him everything of special interest, 
with wise suggestions and advice to direct your attention to 
those matters needing your examination and guiding you in 
the measures to be adopted in dealing with them. 

And I shall not dwell upon the special difficulties and per- 
plexities of the present time, which embarrass the Church, 
since the Church is an integral part of the community involved 
in every great experience of the country and the people. I 
would, however, make one suggestion, which I hope may be of 
some practical value to us as individuals and as citizens and 
Christians. And, as I suppose there is not one of us all who 
has not and does not feel the loss of some material possession 
or advantage, this suggestion, if of value, will be of value to 
all. It is this : When we are tempted to lament our losses, 
let us turn away from that vexing thought, and exercise our 
minds in contemplating what we have left, and tharik God for 
so much that we have not lost. I am sure we would find this 
a very helpful and encouraging mental and spiritual exercise. 
I am not undervaluing material wealth and prosperity. I am 
not making light of the troubles which arise from poverty and 
failure. I am only saying that grieving, and weeping, and 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 85 

despondency do no good. They are useless, irrational, harm- 
ful. They paralyze the powers of mind and body. They 
make us less able to bear the burden of today by adding to it 
the load of yesterday; and they weaken us for the work of 
tomorrow. There is not a wiser or more truly helpful exhorta- 
tion in the Bible than that word of St. Paul, "Rejoice ever- 
more." The shortest verse in the Bible assures of the love 
and sympathy of our heavenly Father in our human woes. 
The next shortest gives the brave response of the Christian in 
his assurance of God's love, "Rejoice evermore." 

I will say one thing more: and I am sure that in this I 
am urging upon your attention the most important business 
which can at this time receive the thought and the efforts of 
the Convention, and of the people of the Diocese, as well as in 
lesser measure, of the people of all the Carolina Dioceses. 
What I would say relates to St. Mary's School. I have already 
referred to its past in what I felt it right to say of the loss the 
Diocese sustained in the death of Mr. Erwin. We are proud 
of St. Mary's past, and thankful for the good work it has been 
doing for the Church and for the community for ninety years. 
It now enters upon the last decade of the century of its work. 
To us its future is committed. Thirty-five years ago the 
Church owned not one foot of the ground of St. Mary's, and 
had not one dollar of material interest in it. With ten thou- 
sand dollars, the legacy of a devoted parishioner of mine in 
my first parish, the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, this 
Diocese entered upon the great adventure of making St. Mary's 
School an institution to be owned and administered by the 
Church. I shall not dwell upon the story of its organization, 
growth, development, and good work. The outstanding visible, 
concrete fact is that St. Mary's now represents a value to the 
Church of more than half a million dollars of investment. It 
has partaken of the trials and difficulties of these hard years. 
It has now been reorganized to meet the conditions of the times, 
and it stands ready to continue its noble and useful course. 
It remains largely with us of the Diocese of North Carolina 
to assure its future. Our brethren of the other Carolina Dio- 
ceses stand pledged to sustain us ; but the initiative, in enabling 



$6 Addresses of the Bishops 

it to enter upon a new era of good work, rests with us. I 
trust the present to be faithful to the past. In the Name of 
God and of His Church, I speak unto His people in this His 
cause, "That they go forward!' 7

ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP COADJUTOR 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

The following is a summary of my official acts for the year 
1931 : Within the diocese, I have made 54 visitations, cele- 
brated the Holy Communion 33 times, baptized 1 infant and 1 
adult, officiated at 2 funerals, ordained 1 candidate for Deacon's 
Orders and advanced 1 Deacon to the Priesthood, held 25 con- 
ferences and attended 59 committee meetings, including Board 
and Trustee meetings of our several institutions and sessions of 
diocesan departments and the Executive Council, licensed 13 
Lay Readers, confirmed 354 persons of whom 48 were colored 
and 7 deaf-mutes, officiated at 36 other services and delivered 
114 sermons, addresses and lectures. I also dedicated the new 
wing and the Chapel at the Good Samaritan Hospital, Char- 
lotte. Outside the diocese, I made 1 visitation upon the re- 
quest and at the invitation of the Bishop of Tennessee, cele- 
brated the Holy Communion 5 times, baptized 1 infant, ad- 
vanced 1 Deacon canonically attached to this diocese to the 
Priesthood, held 2 conferences, attended 14 committee meetings 
and all the sessions of the House of Bishops meeting at the 
General Convention last fall, confirmed 1 person, officiated at 
18 other services, delivered 56 sermons, addresses and lectures 
and made 2 talks over the radio. I spent two weeks last August 
at the Sewanee Summer Training School, where I served as 
Director of the Adult Division, a position from which I have 
since resigned. Altogether it has been a full year, marked by 
more travel than ever before on account of the Provincial Teach- 
ing Mission on the Great Commission. The year has been 
scarred by omissions and mistakes, saddened by the losses from 
the ranks of both clergy and laity but brightened by the acquisi- 
tion of splendid men who soon replaced those who went out 
from us. It has been a time of perplexity and much difficulty, 
the enforced readjustment of finances and the reassignment of 
missionary charges. Perhaps it has been a period of sinful 
anxiety, for we are enjoined not to take faithtless, anxious 



£8 Addresses of the Bishops 

thought for the morrow. To offset the shadows of apprehen- 
sion, however, the manifold evidences of courageous leadership 
on the part of the clergy and of loyal following on the part of 
the laity have been gratefully encouraging. The twelve months' 
retrospect gives confidence in the vitality of the Church, the 
sturdiness of men's faith, and the sufficiency of God's grace for 
every emergency. 

I would like to speak of the many matters of diocesan im- 
portance that might well claim the attention of this Conven- 
tion, but I shall mention only a few. 

The Executive Secretary 

Among the heavy losses that the diocese sustained last year 
by the removal of several prominent clergymen, none, I think, 
affected the diocese more seriously than the resignation of the 
Rev. Elwood L. Haines, who left us to accept work in Glendale, 
Ohio. Mr. Haines did his work so modestly and quietly that 
his worth to the diocese was not apparent except to those who 
knew his self-effacing character and the far-reaching value of 
his untiring efforts. His work in the field, supplying vacant 
Churches, ministering to both white and colored congregations, 
conducting conferences, sharing his technical skill and con- 
tagious zeal, advising with vestries and holding steadily before 
them the missionary vision of the Church: — in these and in 
other ways, he gave the diocese four years of superb service. 
As the first incumbent of the office of Executive Secretary, he 
set a standard of achievement that will be difficult for his suc- 
cessors to maintain. My recommendation would be that, for 
the present, at any rate, no action be taken to fill this office. 
The Chairmen of the several departments have assumed much 
Heavier responsibilities than ever before, and are carrying on 
the many-sided program of the diocese with keen intelligence 
and rare devotion. In expressing my opinion that this office 
should remain temporarily vacant, I am speaking in the interest 
of economy with the hope that the position will be filled when 
conditions within the diocese appear to warrant such action. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 89 

Vade Mecum 

Pursuant to the decision of this Convention last year, the 
diocese has leased for a period of three years from the Winston- 
Salem Foundation, the property in Stokes County known as 
Yade Mecum Springs. The consideration was nominal. The 
trustees of this property have shown an active and liberal 
interest in this undertaking by our diocese. They have more 
than fulfilled their agreement to remodel the buildings and 
improve the grounds, having spent in a general program of 
renovation $5,000 in excess of their original offer of $10,000. 
A special report on Yade Mecum will be presented to this 
Convention later. Suffice it now to say that in the use of this 
property that has fallen so easily and at so little cost into our 
hands, we have an extraordinary opportunity to develop our 
own diocesan center. The program this summer calls princi- 
pally for young peoples' camps. But this is only a beginning. 
Yade Mecum is more than a camp site. It is capable of be- 
coming an influential Church conference center, comparable to 
Kanuga or, on a smaller scale, to the Sewanee Summer Training 
School. Conventions, conferences, camps, retreats, summer va- 
cation homes for clergy and others at little expense are easily 
within the range of possibility and, indeed, are specified in the 
agreement with the trustees as activities to which the place 
will probably be devoted in the future. For years, North Caro- 
lina has wanted and sorely needed a location where the modern 
summer program of an active diocese might be promoted. By 
an incredible stroke of good fortune, a place so advantageous 
as to be almost ideal for our uses has almost fallen into our 
hands. We shall be on trial this summer, and I am exceedingly 
anxious for the project to begin with a high degree of success. 
It is impossible to estimate the advantage that will accrue to 
the diocese from the operation of a Church center of this kind. 
Under the auspices of an able committee that has been working 
hard for a year, repairs and improvements to the extent of 
$15,000 have been made without one penny's cost to us. There 
now devolves upon us, however, the necessity for equipping the 
place. After the closest study of every item of need, it has 
been determined to get along this year with a bare minimum 



90 Addresses of the Bishops 

of supplies. Some of these have already been purchased, thanks 
to the generosity of a few individuals, the Young People's 
Service League, and the Churchmen's Club of St. Paul's Parish, 
Winston-Salem. The sum of approximately $700 is still needed 
to buy the remaining equipment and have the place in readiness 
for the College Students' Conference that starts the summer's 
program on June the 8th. I confidently and earnestly request 
that some provision be made by this Convention to procure 
the remaining needed articles of minimum equipment. 

Advance Work Program 

At the Convention in Cleveland, two years ago, following a 
thorough debate, it was decided that this diocese should engage 
in the Advance "Work program of the Church. Two projects 
were adopted as the goal of our endeavor, one in Japan and 
the other in Arizona, representing a financial objective of 
$12,000, to be completed by the General Convention of 1931. 
In North Carolina, the undiscouragable leaders of this move- 
ment were the members of the Woman's Auxiliary. They were 
supported enthusiastically by a number of parishes and missions, 
but the movement was not diocesan wide. Nevertheless the sum 
needed for the Chapel at St. Luke's Hospital, Tucson, Arizona, 
was completed and forwarded to Bishop Mitchell, from whom 
grateful acknowledgments have been received. For reasons with 
which we are all familiar, it has been decided not to press this 
obligation this year. The attention and energy of the whole 
Church are now concentrated on the mtaintenance of existing 
work throughout the world rather than on the erection of new 
buildings or even replacement of obsolete equipment. The 
Woman's Auxiliary has already voted to apply their savings 
on the Advance Work to the emergency fund. We would do 
well, I think, to follow their example and focus our thoughts 
and prayers on the grave missionary crisis in our Church. And 
this brings us to a consideration of the Deficiency Fund Appeal 
of the National Council. 

Deficiency Fund Appeal 
Those of you who read the Church press have known since 
the Febuary meeting of the National Council of an unprec- 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 91 

edented condition which now imperils the whole missionary 
fabric of the Episcopal Church. Under orders from the Gen- 
eral Convention to operate on the "Pay-as-you-go-plan," which 
means a balanced budget at the beginning of each year, the 
National Council faced a problem, mountain high, when it met 
in New York last February. The General Convention in Den- 
ver, unwilling to slacken the efforts of the Church to preach 
the gospel as Christ commanded to all nations, adopted the 
budget of the previous triennium, amounting to $4,225,000 an- 
nually. Of this sum, $3,400,000 was distributed in terms of 
quotas to the dioceses. North Carolina's share was $23,800. 
Then came the fall campaign of 1931, and when the result 
of the every member canvass was reported in Febuary, there 
was a deficiency of nearly $1,000,000 needed to cover even the 
maintenance budget for the year. What could the National 
Council do with a gaping spread of such a sum as that between 
budget needs and expected income? Twofold action was taken. 
First, economies were effected by cutting the salaries of all 
persons in the employ of the Council by 10 per cent, affecting 
some 3,600 men and women all over the world, and by reducing 
appropriations for all institutions such as schools, hospitals and 
orphanages. Administrative and departmental economies were 
also effected. In this way $600,000 was saved. This left 
$400,000 more either to be hacked out of the budget or to be 
raised by a special appeal to the Church. The Council refused 
to impair the Church's missionary program by further re- 
ductions which would have involved withdrawal from areas 
where the Church has been at work for years, where sacrificial 
money has been spent, where lives have been laid down, where 
hope has been implanted and redemption has been wrought. The 
alternative was to tell the Church frankly about the perilous pre- 
dicament of its missionary enterprise in the confidence that loyal 
Churchmen, when informed, would rush to the relief of the 
situation. The story has been told, and the Church, with an 
earnestness and a sense of unity seldom before manifested, has 
girded her loins for the response to be made on Whitsunday. 
Since the diocese of North Carolina was responsible for creat- 
ing the national deficit in the sum of $7,800, it seems fair for 



92 Addresses of the Bishops 

us to acknowledge this obligation and to exert ourselves clear 
up to the edge of our capacity, not only to redeem our record, 
hut to save faithful servants of Christ from being withdrawn and 
institutions of light and mercy from being shut. 

The second phase of this Special Appeal applies to the fall 
campaign. It is evident that it would be unfortunate to the 
point of disaster to allow the deficiency of this year to recur. 
An emergency of the same character, repeated in successive 
years, would seriously affect the morale of our Church people. 
The remedy lies in the early awareness of the danger and in 
the early formulation of plans to meet it. This calls for a 
new spirit of missions and a new method for securing their sup- 
port. At the recent joint meeting of the House of Bishops 
and the National Council, Dr. Franklin, the national treas- 
urer, stated that less than one-half of the communicants of this 
Church are contributing to parish support, and less than one- 
third to missionary support. These figures, I am thankful 
to say, do not hold for most of the Churches in this diocese. 
Nevertheless, they suggest a possible field for cultivation, par- 
ticularly in the larger city parishes. Chief emphasis, in my 
judgment, should fall upon the urgent need of definite and con- 
tinuous education in the Church's mission. By this, I do not 
mean the time-worn apologetic for missions for only a few 
Churchmen now-a-days are so insensible to the character of 
Christ and the claims of the Gospel as to deny their imperious- 
ness and their privilege. It is not an extreme statement, how- 
ever, to say that the majority of our people lack specific in- 
formation concerning the great cry of human woe to which 
our Church, in Christ's name, is endeavoring to respond. Given 
the facts, we can trust the Spirit of God to move in the hearts 
of men to get under their share of this vast burden of human 
misery. I know that our clergy and laymen have labored 
through the past year with heavy anxiety and, perhaps, dis- 
couragement, and have extended themselves bravely to the ut- 
most limit of mortal effort. All honor to such sacrifice and 
heroism. But mortal effort can always be supplemented with 
supernatural powers. In all likelihood, there will never come 
again in our lifetime such a "synchronizing of crises," to use 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1932 93 

Dr. Mott's phrase, as the present has challenged us with. We 
are confident of the recuperative powers of a Church that hap- 
pily does not depend on its own resources of energy and intelli- 
gence but upon the inexhaustable, recreating powers of a suf- 
ficient and victorious Christ. Discouraged, maybe, but not 
cast down, buffeted by circumstance but not to the point of 
defeat, we gird ourselves with a mind to work, a heart to trust 
and a will to take up the cross and follow after Him.

REPORTS OF THE TREASURERS 



THE TREASURER'S REPORT 



FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED JANUARY 31. 1932 



Mr. H. M. London, Treasurer, 
Diocese of North Carolina, 
Raleigh, N. C. 

Dear Sir: 

As requested we have audited your accounts as Treasurer of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina for the year ended January 31, 1932. Our report 
follows, consisting of the various statements listed in the Index on the next 
page. 

As in previous reports, we have included some transactions in this report 
which actually occurred after January 31, the ending of your year, but which 
were applicable to the current year. We have also excluded the sum of 
$684.42 received for the credit of the William H. Williamson Trust Fund 
before January 31, which receipt you informed us applies to the succeeding 
year. 

A balance of $143.57 to the credit of Elkin Mission was on deposit at the 
Mechanics Savings Bank of Raleigh, N. C. This Bank is now closed and 
in process of liquidation. 

We find you are under bond in the amount of $5,000 in U. S. Fidelity 
and Guaranty Company and that the premium on this bond has been paid 
to October 9, 1932. 

We certify that the securities as herein enumerated were on hand, that 
the receipts as shown were recorded and that the disbursements were sup- 
ported by paid bank checks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. L. Steele & Company, 
Certified Public Accountants. 
By R. L. Steele, C. P. A. 
Raleigh, N. C.

REPORT OF THE TREASURER OF THE 
FORWARD MOVEMENT FUND 



FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED JANUARY 31, 1932 



March 31, 1932. 
Mr. J. Renwick Wilkes, 

Treasurer, Forward Movement Fund, 
Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, 
Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to engagement we have made an audit of the books of account 
and records of J. Renwick Wilkes, Treasurer, Forward Movement Fund, 
Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, for the fiscal year ended January 
31, 1932. The results of this audit are submitted in the attached exhibit 
and schedules. 

Treasurer's Balance. 

All bank deposits were traced to bank statements. All checks paid by 
the bank were examined and checked to the disbursement register. Con- 
firmation was obtained from the bank of the amount shown on the Jan- 
uary 31, 1932 bank statement. 

Cash Receipts and Disbursements. 

All recorded receipts were traced to bank statements. All disburse- 
ments were examined in detail. 

Schedule No. 3 Receipts from Churches includes certain items not set 
out in the Cash Receipts schedule due to the fact that the funds were 
never received by the Treasurer but were paid direct to budget objects. 

Pledges by churches were $11,164.30 in excess of actual remittances by 
the churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. Latimer Brown & Co. 
[Seal] By W. Latimer Brown, 

Certified Public Accountant.

FIRST DAY 



Raleigh, N. C, May 9, 1933. 

The one hundred and seventeenth Annual Convention 
of the Diocese of North Carolina was held in Christ 
Church, Raleigh, beginning Tuesday, May 9, 1933. 

The Holy Communion was celebrated in Christ Church 
at 7:30 a.m., the Bishop of the Diocese officiating, as- 
sisted by the Rev. Milton A. Barber, S.T.D. 

At 9 :30 a.m. Morning Prayer was said by the Rev. 
Alfred S. Lawrence and the Rev. Robert E. Gribbin. The 
Bishop read the lessons. 

The Bishop called the Convention to order at 10:00 
a.m., and the roll was called by the secretary; 47 clergy, 
and 87 delegates from 33 parishes and 11 organized mis- 
sions were present and answered to their names. A 
quorum being present, the Chairman declared the Con- 
vention duly organized. The Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence 
was elected secretary, and the Rev. Daniel W. Allen was 
appointed assistant secretary. 

' The Rev. Dr. A. Burtis Hunter, being granted per- 
sonal privilege, moved the adoption of the following reso- 
lution : 

As to-day the Bishop of North Carolina enters into relation 
with this Convention, we desire to give thanks to Almighty God 
for his untiring faithfulness in the ten years of his episcopal 
duties and for his unswerving loyalty to our dear Bishop Cheshire. 
As he stands to-day above the grave of Ravenscroft, we pledge 
him our loyalty and ask for his leadership. 

The motion was put by the secretary, and was adopted 
by a rising vote. 

The Rev. Dr. Milton A. Barber, also asking personal 
privilege, offered the following resolution, which was 
adopted. 

Resolved: That this Convention offers its felicitations to our 
Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, D.D., and to the Rev. 



26 Journal of Proceedings 

Robert E. Gribbin, on this the twentieth anniversary of their or- 
dination to the Priesthood; and expresses its gratitude to God 
for their faithful and devoted ministry in the Church. 

On motion of the Rev. T. Partrick, Jr., the Rev. Joseph 
F. Fletcher and the Rev. Stephen Gardner were invited 
to seats in the Convention. 

The Bishop appointed the Committee on Elections, as 
follows : The Rev. F. Craighill Brown, Mr. Russell Clark, 
Mr. Robert Hairston, Mr. J. Claude Barber, Mr. Charles 
S. Harrison. 

On motion of the Rev. Dr. Milton A. Barber, the hours 
of Convention were fixed according to the printed pro- 
gram. 

The Bishop then read his annual address. (See Ap- 
pendix A.) 

On motion of the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence, that part 
of the address requesting provision to be made for a 
Chancellor of the Diocese was referred to the Committee 
on Canons. 

The report of the Trustees of the Diocese was read by 
Mr. Alex B. Andrews. 

REPdRT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE DlOCESE 

The Trustees of the Diocese respectfully report: 

In October 1932 the Trustees gave their consent to compromis- 
ing the litigation involving the will of Rev. Edward H. Butler 
of Pittsboro, N. C, whereby a cash settlement was made with 
caveators and the will as probated adjudged a valid will. 

January 12, 1933 the Trustees gave their consent to the re- 
financing of the existing indebtedness on St. Mary's Church, High 
Point, N. C, in favor of the Virginia Trust Company for $36,000, 
and authorized the execution of the papers to evidence that fact. 

The Trustees accepted the bequest of the set of Journals of 
the Diocese of North Carolina, the set of Journals of the General 
Convention and the theological books bequeathed by the late Rt. 
Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, D.D., Bishop of North Carolina. 

April 15, 1933 the Trustees were advised by Mr. H. M. London, 
Treasurer, of the receipt of a letter from the Wachovia Bank 
and Trust Company advising that the investments under the 
codicil of the will of the late Mr. W. A. Erwin for the benefit 
of the church at Erwin had been received. 

The Trustees accepted the offer of $400.00 made by Mr. V. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 27 

Claiborne Kilby for the O'Connor house in Milton upon the terms 
set forth in Mr. Kilby's letter and ordered deed made upon com- 
pletion of the payments. 

The Trustees received from Miss Kate Tucker Capehart of 
Washington, N. C, check for $438.54 and three $100.00 Liberty 
bonds, which the Ladies' Aid Society of St. James Church, Kit- 
trell, had turned over to the Trustees. 

The Trustees voted that the insurance on the church at Chapel 
Hill be reduced to "$75,000 on the church itself, but this did not 
include the organ and accessories." 

Edwin A. Penick, 
Alexander B. Andrews, 
Albert L. Cox, 

Trustees of the Diocese. 

The report was referred to a special committee ap- 
pointed by the Chair. Mr. Kemp D. Battle, Mr. Jos. B. 
Cheshire and Mr. Hamilton C. Jones were appointed. 

At this time the Bishop appointed the Rev. Dr. A. 
Burtis Hunter, the Rev. Morrison Bethea, the Rev. Isaac 
W. Hughes, Mr. F. S. Spruill and Col. Jos. Hyde Pratt 
as a special committee to prepare a memorial on the life 
and work of Bishop Cheshire. 

The report of the Standing Committee was then read 
by the Rev. Dr. Milton A. Barber. 

Report of the Standing Committee for 1932 

Again we have had only three meetings during the year, as 
in 1931. It would seem that the depression during 1931 and 
1932 has even extended to the Standing Committee. These are 
our lean years, so far as our official business is concerned. 

On May 11th, 1932, during the annual meeting of the Diocesan 
Convention, we met in St. Philip's Parish House, Durham, N. C. 
At this meeting David W. Yates, Postulant, was recommended to 
the Bishop for admission as a Candidate for Holy Orders. And 
the Rev. Andrew Dallam Milstead, Deacon, was recommended to 
the Bishop for ordination to the Priesthood. 

On May 17th, 1932, at the first meeting after the Diocesan 
Convention, the newly elected members of the Standing Committee 
of the Diocese organized by the reelection of the Rev. Milton A. 
Barber as President and of Mr. Joseph B. Cheshire as Secretary. 
At this meeting Mr. Albert Evans Sanderson, a Candidate for 
Holy Orders, was recommended to the Bishop for ordination to 
the Diaconate. While Mr. Sanderson had not been a Candidate 
for the full three years, he had applied to the Standing Com- 



28 Journal of Proceedings 

mittee to be recommended to the Bishop for admission as a Can- 
didate for Holy Orders in Sept., 1929, before he entered the 
Theological Seminary of Virginia. His application was not acted 
on by our Committee until December, 1929. But as the delay 
was due to no fault of his, and as he was completing his third 
year at the Theological Seminary of Virginia, our Committee rec- 
ommended him to the Bishop for ordination to the Diaconate at 
any time after June 1st, 1932. 

On Sept. 27th we recommended William Franklin Draper, Post- 
ulant, to the Bishop for admission as a Candidate for Holy Orders 
as of June 7th, 1932; and Henry Johnston, Jr., and Matthew 
George Henry, Postulants, for admission as Candidates for Holy 
Orders as of Sept. 1st, 1932. Our recommendation for dating 
back the admission of these gentlemen as Candidates for Holy 
Orders was due to the fact that they had all applied to us to 
be recommended for admission as Candidates prior to the dates 
that we recommended for their admission. We felt that they 
should not be made to suffer because of our delay in acting on 
their application. And our recommendation met with the ap- 
proval of the Bishop of the Diocese. 

At this meeting of Sept. 27th we gave consent to the Conse- 
cration of the Very Rev. Ralph Ernest Urban as Suffragan Bishop 
of the Diocese of New Jersey and of the Rev. Benjamin Martin 
Washburn, D.D., as Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Newark. 
Likewise we gave consent to the Consecration of the Very Rev. 
John Williamson as Bishop of the Diocese of Arkansas. There 
had been a good deal of discussion in the Church press, pro and 
con, about giving consent to the Consecration of Dean William- 
son. But as the Convention of the Diocese of Arkansas had duly 
elected him as Bishop, and as nothing was alleged against the 
character of the man, our Committee felt that we had no legitimate 
reason to object to his Consecration. We, therefore, gave unani- 
mous consent to his Consecration as Bishop of the Diocese of 
Arkansas. As perhaps you know, a majority of the Bishops re- 
fused to give their consent to his Consecration, which means that 
the Diocese of Arkansas must now elect another man as their 
Bishop. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Milton A. Barber, President. 

The report of the Executive Council was read by the 
Rev. T. Partrick, Jr. 

Report of the Diocesan Executive Council 

The Executive Council of the Diocese met in Greensboro June 
29, 1932, and was organized as follows: Field and Publicity De-

Wilkes; Mrs. Baxter Moore and Dean Charles H. Boyer. Social 
Service: Rev. Joseph F. Fletcher. 

Five meetings of the Executive Council were held during the 
year, Bishop Penick presiding at all of the sessions. 

Much of the time and thought of the Executive Council has 
been taken up in consideration of the 1932 and 1933 Forward 
Movement budgets, made necessary by a falling off in receipts 
from pledges to the Forward Movement Fund by the parishes 
and missions of the Diocese. At the June 29th. meeting of the 
Council, the Finance Department was authorized to reduce the 
1932 budget by $3,500. This authority was not exercised until 
the September 22nd. meeting of the Council, when such a step ap- 
peared necessary. Reductions were made as follows: Mission- 
ary salaries, $940.00; National Council, $1,500; Thompson Or- 
phanage, $500.00; St. Mary's School, $300.00; Department of 
Religious Education, $260.00. 

At the January 13, 1933 meeting of the Executive Council the 
returns from the Every Member Canvass were considered, and 
a reduction in the 1933 budget of $50,487.00, as adopted by the 
Annual Diocesan Convention of 1932, was made, as follows: 

National Council $12,000.00 

Dept. of Missions and Ch. Extension 13,000.00 

Dept. of Christian Social Service 9,100.00 

Dept. of Religious Education 2,500.00 

Field and Publicity department 650.00 

Finance department 1,000.00

Total $46,390.00' 

At the final meeting of the Council, held in Christ Church parish 
house last night, May 8, the Forward Movement budget for 1934 
was adopted, and is recommended to the Convention for its adop- 
tion, as follows: 

Missions and Church Extension $14,500.00 

National Council 14,500.00' 

Religious Education 2,500.00

Unpaid Appropriations prior years 3,750.00 

Total $50,740.00 

At its June 29th. 1932 meeting the Executive Council elected 
Miss Catherine Albertson as director of St. Mary's House, W. C~ 
U. N. C, to succeed Mrs. Frank N. Challen. 

Note was taken at the January 13, 1933 meeting of the Council 
of the retirement of all outstanding obligations to the Sewanee 
Endowment Fund, and the secretary was instructed to write a 
letter of appreciation to the laymen of the Diocese who endorsed 
the notes covering the obligation. Provision was made in the 
budget for the retirement of a balance of $15,000, at the rate of 
$3,000 a year, in December 1927. It is a matter of rejoicing that 
the amount has been paid in full. 

At the January 13th. 1933 meeting the following resolution 
was adopted: 

"Since the last meeting of this Executive Council our Diocese 
has been deprived of the physical presence of our revered and 
beloved Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, D.D. While 
the administrative work of the Diocese during most of the life 
of this Executive Council devolved upon the Bishop Co-adjutor, 
the Bishop attended all of the meetings of the Council that he 
could, and we always profited by his wise and godly advice. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 31 

"This Council wishes to record its gratitude to God for the 
long and faithful service of Bishop Cheshire, the friend and true 
Father in God of us all. His memory is blessed, and his good 
works do follow him." 

The departments of the Executive Council have been active 
during the year. The chief concern of the department of Missions 
and Church Extension has been the maintenance of existing work 
on as efficient a scale as possible with decreased appropriations. 
The missionary clergy and their families have carried on nobly 
under adverse circumstances. The importance and value of Di- 
ocesan Missions to the Diocese were ably presented by Mr. Alex- 
ander B. Andrews in the November 1932 issue of the Carolina 
Churchman. The appointment of two missionaries to the foreign 
field from the mission at Cooleemee is an eloquent witness of 
the necessity of diocesan missions for the well-being of the 
whole Church. 

The department of Field and Publicity did hard and effective 
work in the preparation for the annual Every Member Canvass. 
A well-attended conference of clergy and laity was held in the 
Church of the Holy Comforter, Burlington, in September. Two 
representatives of the National Council, the Rev. Robert W. 
Patton, D.D., and the Rev. Cyril E. Bentley made a number of 
addresses in the Diocese in the interest of the canvass for the 
Forward Movement budget. 

The department of Religious Education has carried on its work 
during the year. A full meeting was held in Greensboro on 
January 12th, 1933, and two other brief meetings have been 
held. Mr. John S. Holmes has served as secretary, and the Rev. 
John L. Jackson as treasurer of the Church School Service Pro- 
gram. Miss Bess Hensel served as supervisor of the Church 
School Service Program. The five secretaries of the Church 
School offerings were re-elected, as follows: Rev. I. Harding 
Hughes, Lenten Offering; Mr. Elliot Duncan, Advent-Epiphany; 
Miss Louise Pearsall, Christmas Box; Mrs. Bennet Perry, Birth- 
day Thank Offering; and Mrs. B. M. Baker, Little Helper's Offer- 
ing. Offerings of the Church Schools during the year 1932 
amounted to $4,928.28. 

The department of Christian Social Service is now fully or- 
ganized for work, being divided into nine sections, as follows: 
Church and Industry, Rural Church, The Church and the Negro, 
Social Institutions of the Diocese, Family Relations, Church and 
Secular Social Agencies, Parochial Social Service Activities, 
World Peace, and Pastoral Care in State Institutions. An at- 
tempt is being made to enlist the interest of the people of the 



32 Journal of Proceedings 

Church in North Carolina in social welfare, and to co-ordinate 
its work with that of other agencies. 

Edwin A. Penick, D.D., Chairman. 

Theodore Partrick, Jr., Secretary. 

The following resolution is offered: 

Resolved: That in the opinion of the Executive Council the 
present financial set-up of the Diocese is in need of simplification 
and unification; that the report of the Department of Finance 
analyzing Diocesan finances, setting forth a consolidated Treasur- 
er's Report and demonstrating the simplicity and accuracy of a 
single treasury operating under a planned system of book-keeping, 
and offering a permissive Canon, placing this matter in the hands 
of each annual convention, is hereby approved. 

The budget for 1934, submitted as part of the report, 
was adopted. 

The appended resolution was referred to a special com- 
mittee consisting of the Finance Committee and Mr. 
Alex B. Andrews, and the matter was made the special 
order for 4 p.m. 

On motion of Mr. Alex B. Andrews, the proposed 
amendment to the canons was referred to the Committee 
on Canons for consideration. 

A letter from the Executive Council of the Diocese of 
Western North Carolina was read by the secretary, and 
was referred to a special committee consisting of the 
Rev. Dr. Milton A. Barber, the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence, 
the Rev. R. Bruce Owens, Mr. Alex B. Andrews and Dr. 
Wade R. Brown. 

April 30, 1933 
At our last meeting of the Executive Council, Diocese of West- 
ern North Carolina, the following resolution was passed, a copy 
of which I have just mailed Bishop Penick. 

"Resolved that the conventions of the Dioceses of North Caro- 
lina and East Carolina be requested, with the consent of their 
respective Bishops, each to appoint a committee to take into con- 
sideration the question of consolidation of the Diocese, or change 
in the lines of existing Dioceses in the State of North Carolina. 
Which committees are asked to confer with the Standing Com- 
mittee of this Diocese in regard to the matter." 

Edgar R. Neff, 
Secretary, Executive Council 
Diocese of Western North Carolina 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 33 

Nominations were then made in accordance with the 
rules of order. 

The Committee on the State of the Church then pre- 
sented its report. It was read by the Rev. B. N. deFoe 
Wagner. 

Report of the Committee on the State of the Church 
The Committee on the State of the Church respectfully reports: 

A summary of vital statistics of the Diocese is appended to 
this report. This committee desires to call attention to slight 
increases in the number of confirmations during the year and in 
the total numbers of baptized persons and of communicants in the 
Diocese. Also a possible slight decrease in the number of bap- 
tisms and a decrease of 418 in Sunday SchooL enrollment are 
notable. 

Less tangible but equally real, as compensating factors in the 
economic distress of the country, this committee finds evidence of 
increasing spiritual development among us, shown in the in- 
crease in numbers of confirmations during the past year and in 
other indications of a deeper spiritual life discovered by the ex- 
periences of the clergy generally. The response of this Diocese 
to the appeal of the Whitsuntide Emergency Offering also is an in- 
dication of the devotion of her people to the cause of the Church. 
Especially enheartening is the zealous service of the missionary 
clergy of this Diocese, whose undaunted efforts in untoward cir- 
cumstances are commendable in the highest degree. 

The work of the various institutions within the Diocese has 
been carried on during the year with success remarkable in ex- 
isting conditions, as will be shown by the reports which the various 
agencies will make to this Convention. To the attention of this 
committee has come especially the Thompson Orphanage, which 
has been able to maintain itself in the face of extreme difficulties. 
To the Superintendent of the Orphanage, whose hope and faith 
are indicative of the superb work of the institution, this commit- 
tee desires to pay the tribute of particular mention. The suc- 
cess of the operation of the camps at Vade Mecum, which com- 
pleted their first season with a fiscal surplus, is also worthy of 
commendation, as is the work of the Young People's Service 
League and the Woman's Auxiliary throughout the Diocese. The 
continued service of these and the diocesan hospitals and educa- 
tional institutions in this year is evidence of the firmness of their 
foundations and the strength of the faith in which they are built. 
Parochial Reports 

Though the greater numbers of Parochial Reports received by 
the Secretary of the Diocese are in satisfactory condition, 



34 Journal of Proceedings 

many are received late and some are either inaccurate or un- 
intelligible, leading to the conclusion that Parish registers are 
not properly kept. This committee desires to call attention in 
this connection to Canon XXVI, which requires that Parish reg- 
isters "shall be presented to the Bishop for his inspection at every 
annual visitation," and to urge that this provision of the Canon 
be rigidly enforced. 

Negro Work 
Although the work of the Church among its Negro members 
has been the subject of discussion in many diocesan conventions, 
this committee finds it still in an unsatisfactory condition. The 
machinery provided for by the Convention in 1932 seems to 
have been only partially set up and to have operated only per- 
functorily. Believing that the report of the Committee on Negro 
Work submitted to the Convention in 1932 represents a considered 
view, this committee urges most strongly that the standing com- 
mittee there provided for and created by the last Convention of 
the Diocese be appointed before the adjournment of the present 
Convention and that it be stimulated to action immediately upon 
its creation so that specific tasks may be undertaken to accomplish 
the desired results and to maintain a living relationship between 
the Church and its colored members. 

Social Service 
Social conditions throughout the world have brought thinking 
people during recent years to the inevitable conclusion that a 
new social order is being formed. In this new social order the 
position of the Church is at once important and dangerous. If 
it is to maintain or extend its influence for good among men it 
must not only adjust itself to new conditions but also undertake 
to shape the new order in accordance with Christian ideals. This 
committee commends to the consideration of the members of the 
Convention the statement "A Social Message for the Church," 
prepared by a conference on the subject last December and print- 
ed in The Spirit of Missions, February, 1933. In 1931 the Con- 
vention created agencies to operate under the Executive Council un- 
til 1933 in "an intensive Social Welfare program of Education and 
service." The results of this action of the Convention are not 
now apparent to this committee, though they may be reported to 
this Convention. However, in renewed effort to accomplish and 
continue what was then recommended by the Committee on the 
State of the Church and to extend the scope of the social service of 
the Church and to redefine the social thought of this Diocese, this 
committee strongly recommends that especial attention be given 
to such matters in each parish and that a committee be appoint- 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 35 

ed to study the Church's Social Message as it should be preached 
and practiced in North Carolina. 

Religious Education 
Closely related to the matter just referred to, is the training 
of adults and children in Christian living and in the teachings of 
the Church. The decrease of 418 (nearly 5%) in the Sunday 
School enrollment during the past year probably indicates a failure 
on our part to provide adequate religious education. It is apparent 
that religious education has not kept pace with secular education 
in this diocese, and the earnest but often inexpert efforts of 
many of us in this direction have too frequently failed to produce 
an impression. In order, therefore, that future efforts may prove 
more fruitful, this committee feels that the entire question should 
be given expert study to lead to specific courses of procedure.

Resolutions 
The Committee on the State of the Church offers the follow- 
ing resolutions: 

1. That the Convention express to the missionary clergy of 
the Diocese its appreciation of the devotion with which they have 
prosecuted their labors during the past year. 

2. That a committee be appointed to sudy the Social Message of 
the Church with attention to its specific applicability to condi- 
tions within this Diocese and to make recommendations to the 
next Convention of the Diocese. 

3. That a committee be appointed to study the situation in the 
Diocese with respect to religious education and to report td the 
next Convention such educational programs as seem suited to 
local needs. 

Of the resolutions appended, the first was adopted. 
The second was referred to the Department of Social 
Service, and the third was referred to the Department 
of Religious Education. 

The report of the Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College was read by Bishop Penick. 

Report of the Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College 
In accordance with the provisions of the Act of Incorporation, 



36 Journal of Proceedings 

the President of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College presents herewith the report of this Board for the 
year 1932. 

The enrollment of resident students for the academic term 
which opened in mid-September, 1932, shows a decline compared 
with the previous year, (127) to 100. The State of North Caro- 
lina supplied 50 of this number which is divided among the three 
dioceses as follows: North Carolina 24, East Carolina 20, and 
Western North Carolina 6. 

The geographical registration of the resident students is as 
follows: North Carolina 50; Virginia 17; Georgia 5; Alabama, 
Maryland and New York 3 each; Connecticut, New Jersey and 
South Carolina 2 each. Ten other states are represented by one 
student. The registration thus contains representatives from 
19 states. The West Indies, Mexico and Germany are also rep- 
resented. Eighty three of the resident students come from south- 
ern states, 12 from States north of Washington, D. C; two from 
Western States and 3 from countries outside the United States. 

A marked increase in the number of day and special students 
has been gratifying, 53 being enrolled as compared with 32 of 
last year. 

The total registration of resident, day and special students is 
153 being a decline of only 6 from the total enrollment of 1931. 

The religious affiliation of the student body is as follows: 
Episcopalian 100; Presbyterian 25; Baptist 12; Methodist 11; Lu- 
theran 2; Roman Catholic, Christian and Corinth Reformed, one 
each. 

It has been an eventful year at St. Mary's School. The resigna- 
tion of the rector, the Rev. Warren W. Way, D.D., became effective 
June 1, 1932. Reference was made before this Convention last 
year of the loss that the School has sustained in the resignation 
of Dr. Way after fourteen years of devoted and effective ser- 
vice. Since this report, however, covers the last six months of 
Dr. Way's administration, we record again the appreciation of 
the Trustees for Dr. Way's contribution to St. Mary's, particularly 
for his insistence upon the high academic standards of the School. 
Jn September, 1932, Dr. Way's successor, Mrs. Ernest Cruikshank 
assumed office under the title of Principal. The wisdom of the 
Trustees' change of policy in selecting a woman as the academic. 
head of the School became almost immediately apparent. With an 
educator's emphasis upon rigid scholastic requirements, the School 
has lost nothing of its former academic prestige, and with a 
mother's wisdom in discipline, she has liberalized the internal life 
of the School in a manner that has popularized it among the stu- 
dents and commended it to parents. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 37 

Under the plan of reorganization, heavy and additional respon- 
sibilities have devolved upon the Business Manager, Mr. A. W. 
Tucker. Despite unprecedented financial difficulties and the death 
of his advisor, Mr. Charles P. Goodno, C. P. A., for many years 
the School auditor, Mr. Tucker has administered the affairs of 
the School with extraordinary skill. His revenue account for the 
fiscal year ending June 30, 1932, copy of which is attached and 
made part of this report, shows an operating profit for the ses- 
sion of $1318.52. He has been ably assisted in his work by the 
Finance Committee of the Executive Committee, Mr. George C. 
Royall of Goldsboro, Chairman. 

The religious life of the students and faculty has become the 
responsibility of a new officer designated as Chaplain. This po- 
sition was filled on November 1, 1932, by the Rev. Jos. F. Fletcher 
who has entered upon his duties with brilliance and adaptability. 

One more change in the personnel of the staff should be noted. 
Miss Mela Royall, Alumnae Secretary, resigned last fall and has 
been succeeded by Miss Katherine Duff of Elizabeth City. 

On March 19, 1933, a legacy of $20,000 was paid to the School 
by the executor of the estate of the late William A. Erwin. The 
generosity of this unconditional gift and the timeliness of its 
payment during the period of restricted banking conditions came 
as a great relief to the management of the School. 

The greatest need of the School is an increased enrollment. St. 
Mary's offers almost every desirable advantage and facility for 
modern education: the prestige of over 90 years of noble tradi- 
tion, high scholastic standards, the influence of the Church, a 
wholesome discipline and a striking witness of success in the 
character of her alumnae. We feel that the School enjoys prac- 
tically everything except a sufficient number of students. The 
Trustees earnestly ask the personal and official friends of the 
School to familiarize prospective patrons with the advantages that 
St. Mary's offers at a cost that ranks it among the cheapest of 
similar institutions of the Church. 

This report closes with a respectful and grateful record of ap- 
preciation for the unspeakably valuable service to St. Mary's 
School that was rendered throughout his ministry and, particularly 
during his episcopate, by the late beloved trustee and Bishop, Jo- 
seph Blount Cheshire. 



Respectfully submitted, 



Edwin A. Penick, 
President of the Board of Trustees.

also spoke on the importance and value of the School. 

The Treasurer of the Diocese, Mr. Henry M. London, 
made his report. (See Appendix C.) 

The report of the Woman's Auxiliary was read by Rev. 
T. A. Cheatham. 

Report of the Woman's Auxiliary 
As President of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of North 
Carolina, I beg to submit the following report. 

The records for the past year indicate a most excellent one. 
Written reports, personal contacts and tangible evidence give proof 
that the Auxiliary has gone forward, but I am compelled to ad- 
mit that her progress is not up to her full capacity. The branches 
are beginning more and more to have a well rounded program, 
consisting of worship, study, work and gifts. Attention given to 
Religious Education, Christian Social Service and the Supply De- 
partment testify to their importance. The United Thank Offering 
still retains its beloved place in the hearts of many. The Treasurer 
presents a splendid showing for all funds. While it is true that 
our material gifts are not as large as those of former years, in 
proportion to the wealth of the donors they far exceed those of 
more prosperous times. Two volunteers for the Mission Field are 
Ethel Louise Byerly and Martha Dabney Jones. Interest in and 
responsibility for Young People and Students are a real obliga- 
tion. Knowledge of the whole Program of the Church is steadily 
gaining ground. Two branches have been organized and addi- 
tional groups added to branches already established. The sum 
of $1128.00 was contributed for the deficit in the National Church 
budget of last year. Approximately seventy-seven children are 
clothed at the Thompson Orphanage and pressers for the laundry

equipment were given. Constant effort is made to strengthen the 
devotional life of the individual. Believing that these are funda- 
mental requisites, observance of Days of Intercession, Corporate 
Communions and the reading of religious books and Church papers 
are constantly urged. Special preparation was made for the 
Every Member Canvass. The Auxiliary realizes that spiritual 
poverty is bound to be the result of spiritual unpreparedness. 

An outstanding event of the past year was the visit of Mrs. 
D. D. Taber, a National Field Worker. That she was able to do 
much of permanent value is clearly shown in the activities and 
renewed life of many branches. In some places nothing of con- 
sequence was accomplished, due no doubt to a combination of 
causes. 

My duties as President have included the following: I have 
held two Executive Board Meetings, attended ten District Meet- 
ings, one Educational Institute, and the Adult Conference at 
Kanuga. I have spoken at several branch meetings and have held 
conferences with Diocesan Officers and other Leaders. In monthly 
letters to each branch and to members of the Executive Board, 
I have endeavored to direct attention to matters which concern 
all of us. In addition, the Carolina Churchman has given me 
other means of presenting subjects pertaining not only to the 
Diocese but to the Church at large. 

Amounts contributed in 1932 are as follows: 

Forward Movement $3448.35 

Advance Work ($1128.00 of this was applied to Nat. 

Church Deficit) 1139.00 

Religious Education 1071.26 

Christian Social Service 908.52 

Specials 4003.97 

Box Work 4812.44 

United Thank Offering 4269.44 

Total $19652.98 

This does not include a large amount spent locally not reported 
through the Diocesan Treasurer. The books of the Treasurer 
show that the Auxiliary has on deposit in the Page Trust Com- 
pany of Raleigh which closed March 3rd, 1933, the amount of 
$1157.80. 

In spite of unfavorable weather conditions, restricted incomes 
and curtailment of Program, the Annual Meeting of the Auxiliary 
in Burlington, April 19th and 20th, was a most successful event. 
Two encouraging signs were the large number of Young People 
present and the many new delegates which represented the older 
groups. My term of office expired at this time and Miss Emma 
J. Hall of Charlotte was duly elected President for the next three 
years. The "Convention" nominated Miss Hall as a representative 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 41 

on the Executive Council to succeed Miss Sally Dortch and re- 
spectfully submits her name for your consideration. 

During my three years as President, I have endeavored to im- 
press upon all the present status of the Woman's Auxiliary in 
the life and program of the Church; to emphasize the spiritual 
side not the mechanical; to have the Auxiliary a real force in 
the Parish and the Diocese. That I have failed in many instances 
to attain my objectives is too evident to need comment, but suc- 
cess in some degree amply rewards me for my effort. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rena H. Clark. 

The report was referred to a special committee con- 
sisting of the Rev. William J. Gordon and Mr. Stephen 
Burroughs. 

The report of the Board of Managers of the Thomp- 
son Orphanage was read by the Rev. Willis G. Clark. 

Thompson Orphanage Report 
The Thompson Orphanage is located geographically in the heart 
of Charlotte and affectionately in the heart of every Churchman 
who lives in our city. 

There are 105 children there almost equally divided between the 
sexes — 50 boys and 55 girls. 

Twenty-three of them have neither father nor mother living; 
seventy-one have either father or mother living, while eleven have 
both parents but some of these latter are worse off than they would 
be if they were full orphans, — the homes from which they were 
taken being so destitute of spiritual, moral and material help. 

From the Diocese of North Carolina there are 66 children; 
from East Carolina there are 24; and from Western North Caro- 
lina there are 15 in the Orphanage. 

All who are old enough go to the public schools. Eleven are in 
the High School; twenty-two are in the Junior High; sixty-four 
are in the Grammar School and three are in the Kindergarten. 
During the past year ten children were placed out as follows: 
4 with their father who married again. 
3 were taken by near relatives. 
1 was adopted legally. 

1 was sent to the Patterson School at Legerwood, N. C. 
1 was placed in a Church School on Long Island. 
Between January 1932 and January 1933 six were admitted to 
the Orphanage. 

There are several boys and girls who are finishing High School 
and need to be placed in work where they can earn a living. 



42 Journal of Proceedings 

There are several other boys and girls who were ready for work 
last spring but who have been unable to find any work at all. 

The problem of placing boys and girls ready for work is indeed 
acute and baffles our ability to solve it. The most urgent appeal 
we make to you today is to help us solve this problem and find 
jobs for these boys and girls. The only home they have is the 
Orphanage, and until they find work the Orphanage must take 
care of them. This means, as the Orphanage cannot enlarge its 
quarters, that we have to deny entrance to many little children 
who are constantly knocking at the door to be admitted, because 
there is "no room for them in the inn." Mr. Wheeler and Mr. 
Jackson as well as the rest of us have had many a heart-ache be- 
cause of this condition. 

Please help us get jobs for these older ones — ready and restless 
to go to work. 

The personnel of the staff at the Orphanage consists of the 
Rev. W. H. Wheeler, Superintendent, Mr. Alexander S. Bynum, 
Asst. Supt., Miss Nalle, Kindergarten teacher, six matrons and 
one nurse. 

This staff cared for 99 children the whole year or 36,234 child- 
days, and 16 children for 2,918 child-days, and served 117,456 
meals from January 1932 to January 1933. 

The health of these children was remarkably good. Dr. Myers 
Hunter, a member of the Board, and several other Charlotte phy- 
sicians gave their services and by their vigilance and consecrat- 
ed care succeeded in keeping all serious diseases away from the 
Orphanage domain and won a great success in their skirmishes 
with the lesser kind. 

All credit is due these noble doctors and we are happy to bear 
our witness to their interest in the welfare of children and their 
service of love. 

Morally and spiritually, under the teaching and the inspiration 
of the influence of Rev. Mr. Wheeler, the Thompson Orphanage 
children are, indeed, an example. The standard is kept high and 
we find that they respond not because of compulsion, but because 
of real appreciation of and devotion to the Principles they are 
taught. 

The Chapel on the Orphanage grounds is to them God's House 
and within its walls they feel the Sacred Presence. 

Service is held there for them regularly and in addition the 
older ones attend St. Peter's Parish Church Sunday School and 
they love to linger there after Church School is over to attend the 
Morning Service of worship in the Church. They follow the 
service and are reverent and attentive. They are taught the 
privilege of being supporters of the Church and are given a small 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 43 

allowance each week that they may go to their worship with an 
offering. 

A number were baptized and eleven were Confirmed in the Or- 
phanage Chapel within the year. 

On the 63 acres of ground owned by the Orphanage there is a 
20 acre farm, a dairy with 16 cows, 10 brick and 3 frame build- 
ings. The Orphanage has its own Infirmary, Laundry, Library 
and Gymnasium. 

It cost from January 1932 to January 1933, $26,672.98 to finance 
all expenses. 

Of this amount it received $6,823.50 from its own endowment 
fund; $2,753.20 from the Duke endowment and the balance from 
the three Dioceses within the state and other sources. 

Due to the exceptionally fine management of Mr. Wheeler and 
Mr. Bynum, and to their and the matrons' willingness to serve 
on reduced salaries, all expenses of the Orphanage were met in 
full and a small balance carried over into 1933. 

The Orphanage has an Al rating for paying its debts. 

To keep it up to this standard it is not going to be fair to ask 
those in charge to make any more personal sacrifices of their too 
small salaries. Therefore, it behooves every Parish and mission 
to do their utmost to raise all funds possible that the reduced 
budget for 1933 may be met in full. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Hamilton C. Jones, 
Willis Gaylord Clark, 

Committee of the Board. 

The Superintendent of the Orphanage, the Rev. Wil- 
liam H. Wheeler, then addressed the Convention. 

Mr. J. Renwick Wilkes submitted his report as treas- 
urer of the Forward Movement Fund. (See Appendix C.) 

The Rev. Edgar H. Goold presented the report of St. 
Augustine's College, St. Agnes' Hospital, and the Bishop 
Tuttle Memorial School. 

Report of St. Augustine's College, Including St. Agnes' Hos- 
pital and the Bishop Tuttle School 
During the past year, the Sixty-sixth Annual Session, there 
have been enrolled 340 students including 43 pupil nurses in the 
St. Agnes' Hospital Training School and 15 students in the Bishop 
Tuttle School for Social Service and Religious Education. The 
enrollment in the College Department was 204, an increase over 
that of last year, while that in the High School Department, es- 
pecially in the lower two classes, showed a marked decline. In 



44 Journal of Proceedings 

the interest of economy and concentration it has been decided to 
discontinue the first two years of the High School, admitting only 
those qualified to enter third year high school. 

In connection with the College work several evening classes 
were held for the benefit of teachers and others desiring to pursue 
college subjects, who were unable to attend the regular day ses- 
sion. This plan was worked out with the approval and guidance 
of the State Educational authorities. 

The great loss to St. Augustine's through the death of Bishop 
Cheshire can be referred to only briefly in this report. Both the 
President and the Rev. Dr. Hunter, our Honorary President, have 
tcld in the Carolina Churchman something of the splendid help 
given to the Institution by Bishop Cheshire during the almost 
forty years that he served as President of the Board of Trustees. 

During Lent a five day mission with emphasis on personal reli- 
gion was conducted by the Rev. George M. Plaskett of Orange, 
New Jersey, a graduate of St. Augustine's and one of our trus- 
tees. On Tuesday of Holy Week Bishop Penick visited us and 
confirmed a class of 15. On Easter Day the Lenten Offering for 
Missions was presented. We were gratified to find it larger than 
the one of last year. 

In spite of a greatly reduced appropriation and other financial 
difficulties there is no indebtedness on the Institution and every 
effort is being made to avoid incurring one. 

On May 1 and 2 the Annual State Public Welfare Institute for 
Negro Social Service and Relief Workers was held at the College. 
About 100 delegates attended from all parts of the State. The 
usual St. Augustine's Conference for Clergy and Church Workers, 
including a Young People's Conference will be held June 5-9. 

St. Augustine's should have an adequate endowment and should 
also receive some regular and definite help from the Diocese and 
State in which it is located and from which it draws most of its 
students. 

St. Agnes' Hospital, with its Training School for Nurses, has 
thus far succeeded in weathering the financial storm, largely 
through aid allowed by the Duke Endowment because of its large 
amount of charity work. St. Agnes continues to be recognized 
both in the State and nationally as one of the very best Hospitals 
and Training Schools of its kind. During the past year there 
have been over 900 bed patients, about 19,000 hospital days and 
about 600 operations. About 850 out patients have been treated 
in the Clinic. 

The Bishop Tuttle School for young women who are preparing 
to enter the fields of Social Service and Religious Education has 
been continuing its good work. This school is supported as a 
special project by the National Woman's Auxiliary. Plans are 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 45 

being made to develop the curriculum in view of the fact that 
most of the students come to it after graduation from College and 
are thus qualified for advanced training. In connection with the 
school, as a kind of practice clinic, is the work at the Community 
House given two years ago by Mrs. A. B. Hunter. In addition to 
directing various community projects and clubs the staff and stu- 
dents have assumed general responsibility for the Neighborhood 
Sunday School which is connected with St. Augustine's Chapel. 
The prospects for an ever increasing usefulness of the Training 
School are very good. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edgar H. Goold, President. 

The reports of St. Peter's Hospital, Charlotte, and of 
the Good Samaritan Hospital, Charlotte, were read by 
Mr. Hamilton C. Jones. 

Report of St. Peter's Hospital 

The Board of Managers of St. Peter's Hospital are pleased to 
submit as a matter of information and record, the following re- 
port covering the fiscal year from January 1st, 1932 to January 
1st, 1933. 

During the period covered by this report the hospital has ad- 
mitted for treatment, 1784 patients for 12876 days. Of this num- 
ber 387 were charity patients who were treated for a period of 
3238 days, and 296 were admitted as semi-charity patients for 
3114 days, of which 846 were free days making a total of 4084 
free days. The patients admitted under the classification of semi- 
charity, pay for services only what they are able to pay and as a 
rule payments are usually small. The total cost to the hospital 
of all charitable services during the year amounted to $17,652.50, 
an average of about $1,500.00 a month. 

Considering the unusual depression for the past year or more, 
the institution is in a very satisfactory condition. 

It is the desire of the Managers to administer affairs of the 
bospital in an economical manner without any intention or desire 
of accumulating a surplus, but we wish to be always prepared 
for emergencies and to be able to continue in the most efficient 
way, the work for which this institution of our Church was or- 
ganized more than fifty years ago. 

During the year in addition to all operating expenses we spent 
for replacements and other improvements a total of $797.36 for 
which we paid cash. 

All current bills are paid to May 1st, and we now have available 
assets as follows:

Interest bearing Stock Mutual B. & L. Association $ 2,300.00 

300 Shares Serial Stock Mutual B. & L. Association 20,700.00

Report of Good Samaritan Hospital 
The Good Samaritan Hospital is one of the 72 hospitals under 
the administration of our Church, and carrying on its work in 
1932 has been much like the pioneer days of forty years ago, with 
multiplied responsibilities and opportunities. We have added a 
new sterilizer which was a great necessity but have been unable 
to have other much needed equipment. We have cared for all 
who came to our doors and many remarkable recoveries and works 
of mercy have been the result. Many sick and suffering souls 
have been sent on their way rejoicing. 

We graduated four nurses during the year and now have three 
head nurses and eighteen student nurses on duty. We cannot 
commend too highly the services of Miss Bodey, our Superinten- 
dent, who has so wonderfully carried the hospital through this 
trying year. 

The third part of the three-fold program of our Lord, healing, 
is as real today as in Apostolic days. Miracles of healing are per- 
formed in every hospital. Doctors and nurses have learned how 
to dress wounds, remove diseased tissue and to provide favorable 
nursing conditions and when they have done all these they wait 
for God to perform the miracle. Works of healing that are both 
scientific and consecrated constitute the work of the Good Samari- 
tan Hospital. Life and more abundant life is its product. All 
this is done in the name of Jesus, the great Physician. Our re- 
port is as follows: 
981 Patients for 9764 Days 
738 Charity Patients for 6389 Days 

Receipts from Patients $ 8,262.60 

Receipts from Duke Endowment 4,832.00 

Receipts from other gifts 8,023.00 

Total receipts $21,117.60 

Disbursements 20,988.86 

Balance $ 128.74

Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 47 

The report of the work at the University and other 
college work was read by the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence. 

Report of the Work at the University of North Carolina 

The number of Episcopal students at the University at Chapel 
Hill is almost the same as last year — about 400, over 100 of whom 
come from other states. 

We have followed the same methods as in other years; a fresh- 
man reception, followed by visits, teas during the fall and part of 
the winter quarter, occasional group gatherings, a student forum, 
and work through the Student Vestry. The night service of pray- 
ers and organ music has increased in popularity with the students. 

During the year we have had visits from Bishop Penick, Bishop 
Darst, the Rev. Cameron MacRae, the Rev. A. C. Zabriskie and 
Seminary students, and Mr. Coleman Jennings. 

In the transfer of the Rev. Thomas H. Wright to New York in 
January, we have suffered a serious loss. Mr. Wright did a splen- 
did work in his personal contacts with students. As soon as fin- 
ancial conditions permit it, an assistant for the work at Chapel 
Hill should be provided. The work has become too big for one 
man to handle satisfactorily. 

Due to curtailment of funds, the entertainment of students has 
been very limited, with the result that many opportunities for 
personal contacts have been lost. But the work goes on; congre- 
gations at the Church services have been good; there is an ex- 
cellent moral tone among the students, and a real interest in the 
things of the spirit. 

Five students from the University entered our Theological 
Seminaries last September. 

At State College, there are about 75 Episcopalians. Dr. Bar- 
ber, Mr. Partrick and Mr. Fletcher have made contacts with them 
by letters and visits. A fair number of them attend the services 
at either Christ Church or the Good Shepherd, and a few of 
them attend the Bible classes. Our Church students at Meredith 
and Peace have also been looked after. 

There is a growing number of Church students at Duke, — 
about 150 this year. With the aid of a small group of students, 
and through the work of the women of the Parish, Mr. Bost 
has made many contacts, and several students are taking an ac- 
tive part in the work of St. Philip's. 

At N. C. C. W., to use the old name, Miss Albertson has carried 
on the work initiated by Mrs. Challen. Attendance at the services 
and meetings at St. Mary's House has been excellent, with Mr. 
Vache acting as chaplain. Miss Albertson has found it neces- 
sary to resign at the end of this college year, but we trust that 



48 Journal of Proceedings 

in spite of finances a new worker can be secured for the opening 
of college in the fall. 

Alfred S. Lawrence. 

The report of the Board of Examining Chaplains was 
read by the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence, as follows : 

Report of Board of Examining Chaplains 

In accordance with Canon 6, Section 5, the Board of Examining 
Chaplains of the Diocese of North Carolina herewith submits the 
following report: 

On April 13, 1932, the Board met at Holy Trinity Parish House, 
Greensboro. Mr. Albert Evans Sanderson presented himself for 
examination under Canon 4, Section 1. He passed satisfactorily 
in all subjects, and the report of the examination was sent prompt- 
ly to the Bishop. 

On June 7, 1932, William Franklin Draper was recommended to 
be admitted candidate, under Canon 2, V, (i). 

On July 29, 1932, Henry Johnston, Jr., and Matthew George 
Henry were recommended to be admitted candidates under Canon

Theodore Partrick, Jr., 
Editor and Business Manager. 

On motion of the Rev. Willis G. Clark, a vote of thanks 
was extended to the Rev. T. Partrick, Jr., for his excel- 
lent work as manager and editor of the Diocesan paper. 

At 3:50 p.m. it was resolved to take up the special or- 
der. The Rev. S. S. Bost presented the report of his 
committee, which referred the whole matter of financial 
consolidation to the Convention without prejudice. 

This report was accepted. On motion of the Rev. T. 
Partrick, Jr., Mr. John H. Small, Jr., was invited to speak 
on this matter of consolidation. Following Mr. Small, 
the discussion was continued by the Rev. Francis H. 
Craighill, Mr. Jos. B. Cheshire, Mr. Kemp P. Lewis, the 
Rev. John L. Jackson, and the Rev. Jos. N. Bynum. The 
hour of recess having come, on motion it was resolved to 
carry the consideration of this matter over to the next 
day. 

The Convention then took a recess until 8 p.m. 

At 8 p.m. a short service was conducted in Christ 
Church by the Rev. Dr. Milton A. Barber. The sermon 
was preached on the subject of "Evangelism" by the 
Rev. Dr. Richard Wilkinson, rector of St. John's Church, 
Montgomery, Ala., and Director of Evangelism in the 
Province of Sewanee. The offerings of the congregation 
were received for the New York Bible and Common 
Prayer Book Society. 



SECOND DAY 



Wednesday, May 10, 1933 

The Holy Communion was celebrated at 7:30 a.m. in 
Christ Church, the Bishop being the Celebrant, assisted 
by the Rev. William J. Gordon. 

At 9:30 a.m. Morning Prayer, w&s said in Christ 
Church by the Rev. William H. Hardin: The Bishop read 
the lessons. 

At 10 :00 a.m. the Convention was called to order by 
the Bishop. 

The Secretary read the minutes of the first day's pro- 
ceedings, which were approved as read. 

The Chair then recognized the Rev. John J. Greene, 
who notified the Convention of the death of Ellis Har- 
ris, of Littleton, the oldest Negro communicant in the 
Diocese, and paid tribute to his faithful service to the 
Church. 

The Committee on Elections reported as follows: 

Report of the Committee on Elections 
The Committee on Elections, having examined the credentials,, 
find the following in addition to the roll called by the secretary,, 
entitled to seats and votes in this Convention. A. T. White, H. 
L. Trigg, Dr. Charles Dunston, Lawrence A. Oxley; delegates 
from St. Ambrose's Church, Raleigh. 

F. Craighill Brown, Chairman. 

The report was adopted. 

The Rev. Willis G. Clark read the report of the Trus- 
tees of the University of the South, as follows: 

Report of Trustees of the University of the South 
We wrote to the Vice-Chancellor of the University asking him: 
to send us some data which he would especially like to have pre- 
sented to our Convention about Sewanee. 
We received the following: 

"There is very little that I can suggest that you bring before the 
Diocesan Convention except the fact that barring a shrinkage in 
income and in student-body, the University is carrying on more 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 51 

successfully than ever before. Effects of the depression on the 
student-bodies everywhere I expect and certainly here have been 
to make them realize the importance of making the most of their 
opportunities. 

The grades of the entire student-body for the winter term were 
over 81 ; the highest I expect ever in the history of the University. 
What we are anxious to do is to have everyone know the splendid 
type of educational institution that Sewanee is both in the Uni- 
versity and in the Academy and to spread this information in or- 
der that a larger number may be drawn to Sewanee in the Aca- 
demy and in the College. 

General Smith tells me that he enjoyed so much his visit to 
North Carolina and I think we have been exceedingly fortunate in 
securing his services to help us build the Academy into the great- 
est preparatory school in the South. He is an exceedingly able 
man and all of the boys in the Academy are crazy about him. 

Of course we have felt keenly the effects of the financial diffi- 
culties but we realize that the Dioceses also are having their diffi- 
culties so that I doubt the wisdom of making appeals for financial 
assistance at this time but I feel that individual Churchmen should 
be called upon not to forget their Church University during these 
difficult times." 

Evidently the Vice Chancellor takes it for granted that every 
delegate to this Diocesan Convention knows what and where the 
University is and all else that needs to be known about its per- 
sonnel and equipment. 

If he is mistaken your Trustees are sorry. They cannot fully 
enlighten you in the brief space allotted to this report. However, 
if you are interested, any one, or all of them will be delighted to 
give you a personal interview and talk Sewanee as long as you 
desire. 

While the University is situated on a beautiful plateau of the 
Cumberland Mountains in the Diocese of Tennessee where the 
big cross crowns the hills, it belongs to the whole Church in the 
south and our Diocese is responsible for its maintenance and suc- 
cess along with every other Diocese in the Province of Sewanee. 

At this seat of learning the deeper meaning of Religious educa- 
tion is given a clear interpretation and breaks forth into a vivid 
and inspiring fruitage. 

Your Trustees believe that the University of the South is doing 
one of the finest works in the whole Church to inspire and enable 
its masculine youth to grow in wisdom and stature and in favor 
with God and man. 

Its inspiration is the Christ and the focus of all its motives and 
undertakings is in Him. 



52 Journal of Proceedings 

Its personnel of officers and faculty consists of fifty highly edu- 
cated, cultured, refined, consecrated men. 

Its branches of education are scientific, classical and theological, 
and its curriculum is rated among the highest of the Universities 
of our land. Its equipment has been increased in quality and 
quantity until now it practically meets all of its present needs. 

It lacks however in one great essential, that is, in sufficient 
number of students to be taught. In the Senior class there are 
only 35; in the Junior class only 34; in the Sophomore class, 64; 
in the Freshman class, 71; with 4 special students and 11 post- 
graduates. The total enrollment is the small number of 219 in 
all departments. And in the Military Academy, its preparatory 
school, there are only 68 cadets. 

The University and Military Academy could take care of nearly 
twice this number and house them comfortably and teach them 
adequately. 

The crying need is for more students. The average expense of 
a student in the academic department is $727. There are a num- 
ber of scholarships available, which can be used to materially 
reduce this cost if the conditions can be met for obtaining them. 

To ministers* sons a rebate of $200 is allowed and no tuition is 
charged those who study for the ministry, bringing the cost for 
the Theological students down to an average of $417 for the 
scholastic year. 

Your Trustees have received, as every other Trustee by now has 
too, a petition from the Diocese of South Carolina for the coming 
meeting of the Board of Trustees in June to work out some plan 
whereby the cost of educating a boy at Sewanee will be even less 
than it is now. 

It is the opinion of your Trustees as it is those from South 
Carolina that such a reduction can be made if the number of stu- 
dents can be proportionately increased. This increase can only 
be obtained by an active interest on the part of both the clergy 
and laity of the Church. 

No apology is needed for our University. What is needed is 
realization and appreciation of the valuable asset to our Church 
which we have in it today. 

Sewanee has launched out into life's activities more cultured, 
successful, and influential Christian men in proportion to the 
size of its student body than any other University within the 
Western Hemisphere. This statement is not based upon a guess, 
but can be verified by convincing facts. And these facts call for 
the manifestation of a greater and more active interest on our 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933

A telegram was received from Mr. Ralph B. Coit, 
Diocesan Treasurer of the Church Pension Fund, stating 
that, he was unable to come, but would send his report by 
mail. The Bishop announced that if there was no objec- 
tion, the report would be received later, and printed in 
the Journal. No objection being made, it was so ordered.

Memorandum 

I think I should call the Convention's attention to the fact that 
there is deposited in the North Carolina Bank and Trust Company 
the sum of $2,026.95 representing 95% of the deposit when the 
bank closed on March 3rd. As treasurer of the Church Pension 
Fund for the Diocese I merely act as agent for the New York Office. 

Assessment notices are sent out quarterly and as the assessments 
are paid, they are deposited in the local bank and forwarded to the 
New York Office quarterly. 

The question as to whether the New York Office is responsible 
for these funds or the Diocese of North Carolina has not yet been 
determined by the attorney for the Church Pension Fund. 

In the meantime, the assessments for the first quarter of the 
year 1932 are being carried by the Church Pension Fund in a 
special account and I am hoping some satisfactory method of 
settlement can be agreed upon during the year. 

I have a schedule here showing the individual items in this 
frozen account. 

R. B. Coit. 
May 9, 1933. 

The Bishop announced the appointment of the Board

rence, the Rev. Robert E. Gribbin, the Rev. Edgar H. 
Goold, the Rev. Mark H. Milne. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 55 

The Convention ratified the appointment. 

The Convention then proceeded to elections. As there 
was no contest for the Standing Committee, the Treasurer 
of the Diocese, and the nominee of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary to the Executive Council, on motion, the rules were 
suspended, and the Secretary was instructed to cast the 
ballot of the Convention for these nominees. The secre- 
tary cast the ballot, and they were declared elected. 

Three ballots were taken for the other elections. For 
the first ballot, the Chair appointed as tellers the Rev. 
H. A. Cox and Mr. Frank Joyner; for the second ballot 
the Rev. J. F. Hamaker, the Rev. C. E. B. Robinson, Mr. 
Russell Clark and Mr. J. C. Barron; for the third bal-

tin's Church, Charlotte, to the Convention of the Diocese 
to meet in that parish in 1934. On motion of the Rev. S. 
S. Bost, the invitation was accepted with thanks. 

The report of the Committee on Finance was read by 
the chairman, the Rev. Sidney S. Bost. 

Report of the Committee on Finance 
On January 12, 1933, the Finance Committee of the Diocese met 
in Greensboro, all members being present. The Treasurer made 
his annual report to the committee and it was ordered that the 
annual audit, as of January 31, 1933, be made and submitted to 
the Convention. The 1933 Budget as follows is recommended: 

Bishop's Salary $4,500.00 

Allowance for House, eight months 600.00 

Bishop's traveling and incidental expenses 1,000.000

Executive Council expenses 150.00 

Interest on borrowed money 100.00 

Miscellaneous (including printing and postage) 400.00 

Total $11,175.00 

Estimated receipts are: 

Assessments on parishes and missions $ 9,945.00 

Income from Permanent Episcopal Fund 1,187.00 



$11,132.00 
Our committee received two communications: one from the Pub- 
licity Department of the Executive Council asking an appropriation 
of an amount not exceeding $300 for the Carolina Churchman; 
and the other from the Department of Social Service asking $10 
as a Diocesan Membership fee in the Federated Council of Social 
Agencies in North Carolina. 

In view of the fact that we are preparing to reduce the per 
centage assessment for the E. & C. Fund from 12J^% to 8%, our 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 57 

prospective income for the year does not justify the allowance of 
these amounts. The only way that it can be done is for the 
Convention to order a higher assessment than 8%. 
The following resolutions are offered: 

(1) That the budget as above offered be adopted. 

(2) That the basis of assessment for the E. & C. Fund for 1933 
be 8% of minister's salary and current expenses, with the follow- 
ing exceptions: Concord, All Saints, $150; High Point, St. Mary's, 
$10; Southern Pines, Emmanuel, $50; Statesville, Trinity, $50. 

(3) That the following arrearages on the 1932 E. & C. assess- 
ment be remitted, if, in the judgment of the Treasurer, such sums 
cannot properly be collected.

Your committee on Canons reports as follows: 

We have considered the request of the Bishop for provision for

Resolved: That the title of Canon X be amended by inserting 
the words "and Chancellor" after the word "Trustees." 

Resolved 2d: That a new section, to be numbered "sec. 3," be 
added to the Canon as follows:

60 Journal of Proceedings 

The Rev. John L. Jackson offered the following" reso- 
lutions which were adopted. 

Whereas after a reduction of $1,500,000 in the Church's Pro- 
gram of the National Church, there is yet a deficit of $146,000 
which means if not raised the closing of Churches, Hospitals and 
Schools in our mission field, and the return of missionaries; 

Be it resolved that every Church in this diocese be requested to 
have a special offering on Whitsunday or some other Sunday dur- 
ing this year towards this deficit and 

Further, be it resolved that the Department of Missions and 
Church Extension be requested to bring necessary information 
concerning this emergency to all our Churches. 

The special committee to which was referred the com- 
munication from the Executive Council of the Diocese 
of Western North Carolina, reported as follows. 

Report of Special Committee to Consider Request of the Ex- 
ecutive Council of the Diocese of Western North Carolina 

Inasmuch as the communication from the Diocese of Western 
North Carolina came, officially, from the Executive Council, and 
not from the Ecclesiastical Authority, of that Diocese, your com- 
mittee felt that they could not, in conformity with the canons of 
the Church, recommend compliance with the request made of this 
convention. 

But, in order that the question may be left open for due and 
deliberate consideration, if so desired, we offer the following reso- 
lution : 

Resolved, That the Bishop of this Diocese be, and he hereby is, 
authorized by this convention to appoint a special committee to 
consider the question raised by the petition of the Executive 
Council of the Diocese of Western North Carolina, if and when 
such request shall be made by the Ecclesiastical Authority of that 
Diocese. 

Milton A. Barber, 

For the Committee. 

The report with the accompanying- resolution was 
adopted. 

The Rev. Dr. A. B. Hunter reported for the Committee 
appointed to draw up a Memorial to the Rt. Rev. Joseph 
Blount Cheshire, as follows : 

Memorial to the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire 
Joseph Blount Cheshire, our late Bishop, was born in 1850, the 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 61 

son of the Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire and Elizabeth Toole 
Parker Cheshire. His character and tastes were formed in boy- 
hood in the midst of a Christian family and under the guidance 
of a clergyman, his father, who was for fifty years rector of 
Calvary Church, Tarborough. His boyhood associate was the late 
Dr. Richard H. Lewis, who remained his friend and counsellor to 
the end of his life in 1926. He attended college at Trinity College, 
Hartford, and while there he came under the influence of the late 
John Williams, Bishop of Connecticut. 

He was only fifteen years old at the close of the conflict between 
North and South. He engaged first in the practice of law. His 
first parish was in Chapel Hill, and he shared there the privations 
of men like Dr. Kemp Battle and Dr. John Manning, his friends 
and parishioners, who had reestablished the University of North 
Carolina. He had been ordained Deacon by Bishop Atkinson in 
1878, and Priest by Bishop Lyman in 1880. Called to be Rector 
of St. Peter's Church, Charlotte, in 1881, he remained there until 
1893, when he was consecrated Bishop in Calvary Church, Tar- 
borough, on the 15th of October. His missionary interest was 
shown in the formation of new missions in and around Charlotte, 
in St. Mark's Church, Mecklenburg County, and in the establish- 
ment of St. Peter's and the Good Samaritan Hospitals in Charlotte 
by his parishioner, Mrs. John Wilkes, and in the care of the 
Thompson Orphanage under his friend the Rev. Edwin A. Osborne. 
St. Mary's School, Raleigh, ceased to be private property con- 
ducted by Dr. Bennett Smedes, and he enlisted the aid of his 
friends to make it a Church school of the Carolina Dioceses. He 
always showed great interest in the work of St. Augustine's School 
and St. Agnes' Hospital, and was President of their Board of 
Trustees. 

The years of his manhood were the years of the rehabilitation 
of North Carolina and the South, and with unselfish devotion and 
untiring zeal he gave himself to the life of his own people. He 
was content to work for them. 

"He sought not kinship with mere earthly kings 
But wielded in the hearts of men a sceptered power." 

His early published writings were an effort to gather up the 
ecclesiastical records of his own diocese and state. He wrote the 
History of the Church in the Confederate States in order to pre- 
serve the records of the trying times of war, and his "Nonnulla" 
preserved the traditions he had gathered as a North Carolina boy 
and man. 

The words of his last Convention address may be taken as his 
legacy to this Convention. 

"We have from year to year a feeling that we are the same in 
faith, in love, in the animating sense of a continuous common 



62 Journal of Proceedings 

hope and purpose, a common and unceasing effort to carry on the 
work handed down to us; and the indwelling Spirit knits us into 
a heavenly fellowship with the Body of Christ, so that we feel our 
union and identity with all the faithful who are gone before, — 
but whose life and work persists through all earthly and human 
mutations, and makes us one with them, now and forever."

The Convention stood during the reading of the Me- 
morial, which was followed by special prayers by Bishop 
Penick.

I. Harding Hughes, 

In charge of Lenten Offering. 

Speaking on the report, the Rev. E. H. Goold suggest- 
ed that the Lenten Mite Box offering be extended to 
adults, and the suggestion was referred to the Lenten 
Offering chairman for 1934. 

The matter of Financial consolidation, deferred from 
the previous day, was put before the Convention. On 
motion of the Rev. W. G. Clark, Mr. J. H. Small, Jr., was 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 63 

invited to explain his plan further. The Rev. Dr. A. B. 
Hunter moved Mr. Small's drafted resolution as a sub- 
stitute, with the proviso that further consideration be 
deferred to 1934. After discussion, Dr. Hunter with- 
drew his substitute motion. 

The Convention then took a recess until 2 p.m. 

At 2 p.m. the Convention reassembled. 

The Rev. W. J. Gordon, chairman of the committee 
to which the report of the Woman's Auxiliary was re- 
ferred, reported as follows. 

Report of Committee to Whom Was Referred the Report of 
the President of the Woman's Auxiliary 
Your Committee considers the report of the President of the 
Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council in the Diocese of North 
Carolina as again one of the most encouraging and inspiring inci- 
dents of the Convention. 

The Committee therefore offers the following resolution: 
Resolved: That this Convention go on record as expressing to 
the retiring President, Miss Rena Clark, and to the members of 
the Woman's Auxiliary its sense of appreciation for the vital 
character of the work done in the past year, especially its increased 
emphasis on the spiritual character of the work, and the fine results 
obtained in face of the conditions to be met. 
Respectfully submitted, 

William J. Gordon 
Stephen Burroughs. 

The resolution was adopted. 

Again taking up the subject of Financial consolidation, 
Mr. Kemp D. Battle moved as a substitute for the Reso- 
lution of the Executive Council 

Resolved: That this Convention expresses itself as in favot of 
the general principle of a single consolidated budget. 

This resolution was adopted. 

The report of the Committee on Canons was called for, 
concerning the proposed amendment submitted on the 
first day of Convention. 

The Rev. R. Bruce Owens reported as follows: 

Proposed Amendment to Canon VIII, Section 6 
"The Convention may delegate the duties of the Committee on 



64 Journal of Proceedings 

Finance to the Department of Finance of the Executive Council, 
which shall be appointed by the Bishop from the membership of 
the Council elected by the Convention; in which event, in addition 
to its own duties and powers, the Department of Finance shall be 
charged with all the duties and powers of the Committee on 
inance, and there shall be no Committee on Finance, but the 
Department of Finance will be deemed and considered to be the 
Committee on Finance wherever named in the Canons. While such 
action of the Convention is in force, the Department of Finance 
with the consent of the Bishop and the Executive Council, may 
merge the Budget of the Executive Council for the Church's Pro- 
gram into the Budget of the Episcopal Fund; Provided, however, 
that the sum designated the "Budget for the Church's Program" 
shall not be the basis of an assessment. Payments by Churches 
and Missions toward this unified Budget shall be made monthly. 
Such action by the Convention shall continue in force until altered." 

On motion of Mr. K. D. Battle, the proposed canon was 
adopted. 

Mr. K. D. Battle then presented the following resolu- 
tion, which was adopted. 

Resolved: That as authorized by the last paragraph of Section 6, 
Cannon VIII, the same being an amendment adopted at this Con- 
vention, beginning with the year 1934, the Committee on Finance 
shall be merged into the Department of Finance of the Executive 
Council, and each and all the provisions of said amendment shall 
govern the financial policy of the Diocese until further action 
thereon by a Convention. The Department of Finance is instructed 
to consolidate the budgets of the Diocese into a single diocesan 
budget, taking into account all expected receipts and disburse- 
ments, not now contained in said budgets. This budget shall be 
in two main divisions, one "Episcopal Maintenance," and the other 
"The Church's Program." There may also be established one sys- 
tem of determining the amounts necessary to be contributed by 
churches, but the amount necessary to pay that portion of the 
budget for Episcopal Maintenance shall be raised by an assessment, 
and the balance by quotas as accepted by each church. There shall 
be no transfer of funds between the two divisions of the budget. 

The report of the special committee to which the re- 
port of the Trustees of the Diocese was referred was then 
read by Mr. K. D. Battle. 

Report of the Committee to Consider the Report of the 
Trustees of the Diocese 
The committee appointed to consider the report of the Trustees 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 65 

of the Diocese report that they have carefully considered said 
report and every part thereof, and are of the opinion that the 
acts of the Trustees set forth therein were discreet and proper. 
They therefore recommend that said report be accepted by the 
Convention and approved. 

K. D. Battle 

H. C. Jones 

Jos. B. Cheshire, Jr. 

The report was accepted, and the report of the Trus- 
tees of the Diocese was approved. 

On motion of the Rev. I. H. Hughes, the appreciation 
of the Convention was extended to Mr. J. H. Small, Jr., 
for his labors in preparing the plan of consolidation, and 
to Mr. J. Renwick Wilkes, for his faithful work as Treas- 
urer of the Forward Movement Fund. 

The Rev. R. E. Gribbin reported for the Lenten Read- 
ing Contest. 

The Rev. I. W. Hughes presented the following resolu- 
tion, which was adopted by a rising vote. 

The spirit of fellowship is an essential element of the very 
genius of our Christian Faith. This spirit has been quickened and 
enlarged through our gathering in this Parish of Christ Church, 
Raleigh. For the courtesy and genial hospitality, the happy facil- 
ities of every arrangement for our comfort and service, we of the 
Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina wish to express our 
heartfelt thanks to the Rector and Congregation of Christ Church, 
and our equal gratitude for the warm-heartedness of entertainment 
granted us by our several hosts and hostesses. We also felicitate 
ourselves upon the comradely cordiality of the Rector and Con- 
gregation of the Church of the Good Shepherd, of the Principal of 
St. Mary's School, of the President of St. Augustine's College, and 
of the Rector and Congregation of St. Ambrose's, and would put 
on record our sincere appreciation of the courtesies of the local 
press and every act of graciousness on the part of the citizens of 
Raleigh. 

The pastoral staff used by the late Bishop was pre- 
sented to the Convention by Mr. Jos. B. Cheshire. Bishop 
Penick assigned it to the custody of the secretary. 

The Rev. Robert E. Gribbin moved that the Bishop 
appoint a committee to carry in person felicitations to the 
Diocese of East Carolina on the occasion of its fiftieth an- 



66 Journal of Proceedings 

niversary. The motion was adopted, and the Chair ap- 
pointed the Rev. T. Partrick, Jr., Mr. Jos. B. Cheshire, 
and Mr. H. M. London. 

On motion of the Rev. W. J. Gordon, it was resolved 
that the report of the Board of Managers be referred to 
the Department of Publicity, with the request that it be 
used in preparing for the Thanksgiving Offering. 

Mr. F. S. Spruill addressed the Convention, recalling 
the Convention at which Bishop Cheshire was elected. 

On motion of the Rev. I. W. Hughes, the Bishop was 
authorized to appoint alternate delegates to the Provin- 
cial Synod, if necessary. 

The Bishop then briefly addressed the Convention, 
taking as his text the lesson for the morning, Numbers 
13 and 14. 

After the singing of the Gloria In Excelsis, and the 
Benediction by the Bishop, the Convention adjourned 
sine die. 

Edwin A. Penick, 

Bishop.

Alfred S. Lawrence, Secretary. 



APPENDIX A 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP 



ADDRESS OF THE BISHOP 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

As we assemble for the one hundred and seventeenth 
Annual Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina, I 
feel moved to speak first of that which is uppermost in 
our minds and hearts today. I refer to the absence of our 
beloved late Diocesan. In his Convention Address last 
year he stated that, with two exceptions, he had attended 
every convention of the diocese since 1874. When he began 
to preside over this body thirty-nine years ago, I suspect 
that the majority of us were boys or very young men. 
For such a long and practically unbroken period his per- 
sonality has graced and guided this assembly with an un- 
conscious and very humble domination. When he fell 
asleep peacefully on December 27, 1932, not only this di- 
ocese and people whom he loved so paternally but the 
entire Church suffered an irreparable loss. Bishop 
Cheshire represented the best of the patriarchal type of 
the Episcopate which is fast becoming obsolete. I re- 
ferred above to his lamented absence from this Conven- 
tion. It would be nearer the truth to speak of his eager 
presence in the very front rank of that sainted crowd of 
witnesses with which we are encompassed. At a later mo- 
ment in this Convention, a resolution In Memoriam will 
be presented, not as an adequate tribute, but as a symbol 
of our inarticulate sense of loss and our gratitude that 
God vouchsafed to this diocese for so many years such an 
honorable Chief Shepherd, a "man of good report," "full 
of the Holy Ghost and of power." 

When I accepted the election of this Convention eleven 
years ago this month, I abandoned my own positive con- 
viction of inadequacy for a new faith in God and reliance 
upon the human aid of the clergy and laity of this di- 
ocese. In perfect honesty I can say that I have never 
ceased to wonder that such a choice should have been 
made. The only change that has come over me in the 
meanwhile is a deepening reliance upon that two-fold* 



70 Address of the Bishop 

human-divine dependence. As I become the Sixth Bishop 
of this diocese, it is with a profound awareness of the 
noble tradition of the Episcopate in North Carolina, and 
my daily prayer is that I may touch the border of that 
honorable heritage. You must not expect me to take 
Bishop Cheshire's place. Such a unique position can 
never be filled. Such methods of work and influence can 
never be imitated. If it is appropriate to declare a policy 
which I have followed and shall pursue it is one of con- 
ference with my superiors among the clergy and my 
betters among the laity in reliance upon the wisdom of the 
collective mind. I frankly invite and expect your free 
expressions of individual opinion and assure you of my 
respect for your judgment especially when it differs 
from my own. Out of such unfettered diversity of opin- 
ion and forthright expression, I believe the simple ele- 
ments of truth and right are most likely to emerge and 
the present unity of the diocese most apt to be preserved. 
For where two or three are gathered together in the Mas- 
ter's name, there He is in the midst of them. 

I submit by title my Journal of Official Acts as 
Bishop Coadjutor covering the period from January 1st 
to December 27th, 1932, and as Bishop for the last four 
days of the year. A tabulation of this record shows that 
I have made 64 visitations, celebrated the Holy Com- 
munion 42 times, officiated at 5 Funerals, ordained one 
Candidate for Holy Orders to the Diaconate and advanced 
one Deacon to the Priesthood, held 49 conferences with 
individuals and with groups, attended 55 committee meet- 
ings including the Boards of Trustees of St. Mary's 
School, St. Augustine's College and the Thompson Or- 
phanage, the quarterly meetings of the Executive Council 
and the several Diocesan Departments, issued Lay Read- 
er's Licenses to 14 persons, officiated at 33 services and 
preached, lectured and made addresses to the number of 
161 times. The number of Confirmations was 326 of 
which 3 were deaf, presented by the Rev. Roma C. For- 
tune, and 25 were negroes. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 71 

Outside the diocese I have officiated at one Funeral, 
attended 12 conferences and 39 committee meetings in- 
cluding the sessions of the National Council and two of 
its Departments, the meetings of the Board of Regents 
and Trustees of the University of the South and several 
Provincial organizations, conducted one service and 
spoken 9 times. 

Concerning the clerical changes in the diocese, it be- 
comes my sad duty to record the death on December 11, 
1932, of the Rev. Wilmot Stuart Holmes, rector of Grace 
Church, Lexington, since April 7, 1922. Quiet and re- 
strained in manner and of scholarly disposition and train- 
ing, Mr. Holmes pursued his ministry with such unas- 
suming grace that one had to look closely to observe the 
steady growth of his parish and their unswerving loyalty 
to the missionary demands of the Church. His services 
as a faithful Priest who loved both the solitude of the 
scholar and the comradeship of friends will be missed 
especially by those who appreciated the sterling char- 
acter and humility of spirit that lay behind his modest 
exterior. 

By transfer to other dioceses we lost the Rev. Warren 
W. Way, D.D. to New Jersey on October 1st, 1932. In 
my Report as President of the Board of Trustees of St. 
Mary's School, reference is made to the valuable contri- 
bution that Dr. Way made during his 14 years of service 
as Rector of this institution. 

On September 1, 1932, Bishop Cheshire transferred to 
the diocese of Western North Carolina the Rev. Jackson 
Augustus Martin. 

The Rev. James Daniel Miller, rector of St. Paul's 
Church, Louisburg, and Priest in Charge of St. John's, 
Wake County, St. James' Church, Kittrell, and Franklin- 
ton Mission, retired January 1, 1933, under the old age 
benefit of the Church Pension Fund after 8 years of 
faithful service in this diocese. 

These losses in the ranks of our clergy have been sup- 



72 Address of the Bishop 

plied by acquisitions of new men both by ordination and 
by transfers from other dioceses. 

On June 5th, 1932, the Second Sunday after Trinity, I 
ordained to the Diaconate, Albert Evans Sanderson, Can- 
didate for Holy Orders, who was presented by the Rev. 
Hugh A. Dobbin of Legerwood, N. C. The Rev. David T. 
Eaton, rector of the Church of the Holy Comforter in 
which the service was held, read the Litany and the 
Epistle. Mr. Sanderson was assigned to the position of 
assistant to the rector of Holy Comforter parish, and 
Deacon in charge of Calvary Mission, Burlington. He 
has entered zealously upon his new work. 

On May 2, 1932, the Rev. Robert Elwood Roe was re- 
ceived from the diocese of New Jersey, and became rector, 
as he had formerly been of Holy Trinity parish, Greens- 
boro. Since last November, Mr. Roe has been doing vol- 
unteer missionary service at Christ Church, Walnut Cove. 

The Rev. Frank DeVinney Dean, M.D., was transferred 
to this diocese from East Carolina on June 1, 1932, and 
became rector of St. Timothy's parish, Wilson, and Priest 
in charge of St. Mark's mission in that city. 

Although not yet officially transferred, the Rev. Jo- 
seph F. Fletcher on November 1, 1932, became Chaplain 
of St. Mary's School where he also serves on the faculty. 

To all of these clergymen who have come to North 
Carolina during the past year, I extend in behalf of the 
diocese a hearty welcome. 

The Candidates for Holy Orders are: 

George Crummell Pollard. 
Odell Greenleaf Harris. 
Frank Easton Pulley. 
Benjamin Thorp Brodie. 
Milton Moran Weston, Jr. 
David Yates. 
James Edwin Bethea. 
John Wesley Leathers. 
William Franklin Draper. 
Henry Johnston, Jr. 
Matthew George Henry. 
William Dabney Gettel. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 73 

The Postulants are : 

Alfred Stratton Lawrence, Jr. 
Ralph Andrew Bridges. 

The Clergy are working in their former fields with the 
following Exceptions: 

The Rev. Thomas H. Wright has resigned his work 
among students at Chapel Hill and removed to New York 
City to accept the position of Secretary of the National 
College Commission. He still remains canonically con- 
nected with this diocese. 

The Rev. Daniel W. Allen became temporarily Priest 
in charge of Grace Church, Lexington, March 1, 1933, in 
addition to his rectorship of St. Mary's Parish, High 
Point. 

The Rev. John J. Greene, Priest in charge of the Church 
of the Redeemer, Greensboro, assumed the care of St. 
Stephen's Mission, Winston-Salem, March 1, 1933, the 
date upon which the resignation of the Rev. John H. 
Jones became effective. 

The Rev. James D. Miller resigned his charges at 
Louisburg, Kittrell, Franklinton and Wake County on 
January 1, 1933, and retired under the old age benefit of 
the Church Pension Fund. He continues to serve these 
Churches voluntarily with such frequency as the Pension 
Fund allows. 

The Rev. F. H. U. Edwards, in addition to St. Cyprian's, 
Oxford, has been assigned to the care of All Saints, War- 
renton, St. Anna's, Littleton, and St. Luke's, Warren 
County. 

The Rev. John Herbert Jones resigned as Priest in 
charge of St. Stephen's, Winston-Salem, March 1, 1933, 
and removed to Florida. He remains canonically connect- 
ed with this diocese. 

On May 18, 1932, in Trinity Church, Statesville, I or- 
dained to the Priesthood the Rev. Andrew Dallam Mil- 
stead, Deacon. The sermon was preached by the Rev. 
William A. Lillycrop of Greenville, N. C. The Rev. Rob- 
ert E. Gribbin read the Litany. The Candidate was pre- 



74 Address of the Bishop 

sented by his former rector, the Rev. John L. Jackson, 
who also read the Gospel. The following Presbyters join- 
ed me in the laying on of hands: The Rev. Messrs. Wil- 
liam H. Hardin, John L. Jackson, I. Harding Hughes, 
Robert E. Gribbin, Mark H. Milne, Robert B. Owens, Wil- 
liam H. Wheeler, H. Norwood Bowne, Daniel W. Allen 
and William A. Lillycrop. Mr. Milstead has continued 
his work as Priest in charge of Trinity Church, States- 
ville and St. James', Iredell County. 

It is evident from the account of the changes in the 
work of the Clergy that the diocese has been operating 
under a policy of contraction with reduced personnel. 
When vacancies have occurred, a neighboring clergy- 
man has been asked to combine these unshepherded con- 
gregations with his former work. And in every instance 
when such a request has been made, and indeed, in some 
cases voluntarily, and without compensation, the addition- 
al labor and responsibility has been assumed and cheer- 
fully done. Such is the spirit of the Clergy of this di- 
ocese. They do not ask for praise in doing what they 
believe to be their duty. But they are entitled to our 
appreciative acknowledgement of their self-sacrificing la- 
bors and the ready admission that much of the most dif- 
ficult and valuable work of the Church is done in obscure 
places under circumstances that would discourage less 
spirited and consecrated men. 

I come now to speak of the changes in the matter of 
Episcopal supervision that have been brought about by 
Bishop Cheshire's death. The place of my residence, 
while personal in some respects, is not without official 
importance. The geographical location of Raleigh in the 
approximate center of the diocese together with the fact 
that this has been the See City long enough for tra- 
ditional associations to have clustered about the Bishop's 
house, have influenced me to decide to remove my resi- 
dence from Charlotte to Raleigh some time in the early 
fall. From this central position, I expect to be able to 
reach all parts of the diocese with facility and economy of 
time. 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 75 

Among the many qualifications of Bishop Cheshire 
which I shall never possess was his judicial temperament 
and legal training and actual experience in law. With 
this ability and equipment on the Bishop's part, it was 
not necessary for this diocese to have a Chancellor. I 
would welcome the creation of such an office either by 
canon or resolution of this Convention in order that the 
diocese might have an official legal advisor. 

It is so obvious as to need no comment from me that, 
for some time to come, the diocese will be subjected to 
the disadvantage of infrequent visitations. Ten years 
ago there were three Bishops and two archdeacons. By 
death and inexorable conditions, this number has been re- 
duced to one. I hesitate to mention this contrast with 
the past lest some one should suspect that I am intimat- 
ing a desire for an additional man in the field. I know 
too well the limits of the financial ability of our generous 
people to make such an unfair and, indeed, unnecessary 
suggestion. So long as present conditions obtain, I have 
no intention to ask you for a Coadjutor or Suffragan or 
Archdeacon or Executive Secretary, for my share of la- 
bor is no heavier than that of the average Priest or re- 
sponsible man of affairs. As a matter of fact, it is easier 
because of the courtesies and special privileges that the 
people of this diocese have habitually bestowed upon their 
Bishop. I mention the fact of our reduced field staff as 
the basis of an appeal for patience and contentment with 
episcopal visitations of no greater frequency than once 
a year, or maybe longer, and as a suggestion to my breth- 
ren of the clergy that they revert to their former prac- 
tice of preparing and presenting larger classes for Con- 
firmation. Such a plan of diminished supervision has 
its apparent disadvantages. Yet I am encouraged to 
think that the policy of intensive and concentrated ef- 
fort at longer intervals may not be unavailing by the 
fact that up to the present date this year, I have con- 
firmed nearly 100 more persons than up to a correspond- 
ing time last year. 



76 Address of the Bishop 

In conclusion, I refer to certain financial considerations. 
The first is highly gratifying. During the year, the di- 
ocesan debt was paid in full. This debt was incurred in 
December, 1927, when $15,000 was borrowed, with the 
endorsement of several generous laymen, to complete 
North Carolina's pledge of $60,000 towards the Sewanee 
Endowment Fund. We record our satisfaction in having 
contributed our proportionate share towards the endow- 
ment of our one southern Church university, and our 
appreciation to the laymen whose endorsements made 
this loan possible. 

In the second place, I want to make this form of public 
acknowledgement of the spirit and extent of this diocese's 
response to the Emergency Fund Appeal of the National 
Council by its special offering on Whitsunday, 1932. With 
the generous and enthusiastic assistance of the Woman's 
Auxiliary, under the leadership of its president, Miss 
Rena H. Clark, this diocese gave $5048.23 to this special 
cause. This was the largest amount contributed by any 
diocese in the Fourth Province. 

Again, in the total sum contributed by the 15 dioceses 
of the Province of Sewanee towards the support of the 
Church's Program through the National Council, the di- 
ocese of North Carolina takes first place. In the per cent- 
age of quotas paid, however, we stand second with 82%, 
East Carolina being first with 100% paid . 

Having referred to these creditable achievements, I 
am now constrained to refer to the present financial con- 
dition of the diocese. Despite the laborious efforts of 
the Executive Council, the combination of missionary 
fields, the curtailment of appropriations to institutions, 
the reduction of missionaries' salaries and every other 
means of economy that could be devised, the fact remains 
that payments to the Forward Movement are today short 
to an unprecedented degree. I do not speak critically, for 
Ifeel and share the reproach of this condition myself. I 
am also keenly aware of the extraordinary business and 
banking conditions of the last few months. In the name 



Diocese of North Carolina, 1933 77 

of plain fact, however unpleasant, it appears that many 
of our parishes and missions have given secondary place 
to their primary obligations. The remedy lies in local 
leadership, both clerical and lay, but particularly with 
the vestries and mission committees. The position of 
warden or vestryman is not only an honorable distinction 
but an office of serious responsibility involving an intelli- 
gent understanding of the details of the Church's busi- 
ness, the application of approved modern methods of fi- 
nance, and a devotion of loyalty of a very high order. 
With such a group in every Church, we could dismiss our 
apprehension about the proper discharge of the Church's 
first business. 

No one of us can foretell what the economic future 
may bring forth. But I am confident that we can pre- 
dict a new day in the spiritual life of the Church. The 
many evidences of a religious renaissance in our day are 
not imaginary. The futility of dependence upon "things" 
is being forced upon the consciousness of men. A sense 
of emptiness and insufficiency is the first condition of 
spiritual rebirth. We recognize the foundational truth of 
Christ's assertion that a "man's life consisteth not in the 
abundance of things that he possesses." Our "heavenly 
Father knoweth that we have need of things." But our 
primary need is of Him. We, therefore, challenge and 
defy and welcome the crucible of our present experience, 
and dare to capitalize it in the reasonable and religious 
trust that the richness of God's kingdom, if not the full- 
ness of this world, will be added unto us. 

Edwin A. Penick, 

Bishop of North Carolina.

APPENDIX C 



REPORTS OF THE TREASURERS 



THE TREASURERS REPORT 



FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1933 



Mr. H. M. London, Treasurer, 
Diocese of North Carolina, 
Raleigh, N. C. 

Dear Sir: 

As requested, we have audited your accounts as Treasurer of the 
Diocese of North Carolina for the year ended January 31st, 1933. 
Our report follows, consisting of the various statements listed in the 
index on the next page. 

As in previous reports, we have included some transactions in this 
report which actually occurred after January* 31st, the ending of your 
year, but which were applicable to the current year. 

A balance of $143.57 on deposit in the Mechanics Savings Bank of 
Raleigh, N. C, to the credit of Elkin Mission, is of doubtful value, 
as this bank has been closed for more than a year, and to date no 
dividends have been paid. This deposit was made by a former 
Treasurer many years ago, and\ no record of the account was on your 
books until you picked it up last year. 

We find that you are under bond in the amount of $5,000.00 in 
the U. S. Fidelity and Guaranty Co., and that the premium on this 
bond has been paid. 

We certify that the securities as herein enumerated were on hand 
at this date, that the receipts as shown were recorded, and that the 
disbursements were properly supported. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. L. Steele & Co., 

Certified Public A ccountants. 
By R. L. Steele, C. P. A. 
Raleigh, N. C. 
April 13, 1933.
